This Safeway Pharmacy/UCSF Program is based in the San Francisco Bay Area near world class dining, music, entertainment, sports, and cultural amenities. California is also a leading state for the advancement of pharmacy practice, and pharmacists can administer and furnish a growing list of medications.
The resident is assigned home-base community pharmacy sites where approximately 40% of time is spent, and dedicated teams of experienced preceptors mentor the resident through the year. The Dublin site is located in the East Bay near the Pleasanton Corporate and Division offices where leadership and management learning experiences take place. Our advanced community-based patient care learning experiences are supplemented with ambulatory care-based patient care at UCSF-affiliated hospitals in San Francisco. Through our partnership with UCSF, the resident participates in a teaching certificate program and performs research at the UCSF Parnassus Campus. Our program's learning experiences have been specifically designed not only to ensure you have the skillset necessary for success immediately upon graduation, but also in the near-future when pharmacy practice has further advanced. These learning experiences allow room for adjustment based on your strengths, interests, development opportunities, and future goals.
PharmD degree and licensure in state of residency required. Official academic transcript, CV, letter of intent, and three letters of recommendation submitted to PhORCAS.
