The 12-month PGY1 Community-based Pharmacy Residency Program is a combined program offered by Florida A&M University and Community Health Northwest Florida. The main emphasis of the program is primary care in rural and urban underserved populations. The program is designed to provide the Resident with a unique experience through postgraduate education and training to build the necessary knowledge and skills to care for patients in the community setting. The Resident will learn to take responsibility for medication use outcomes through patient interviews, evaluation, assessment, and monitoring. The Resident will be trained in distributive services, business administration, health and wellness interventions, immunizations, disease state education and monitoring, medication therapy management services, point of care testing, documentation of services, and billing. Finally, there is a required academic rotation. All of our required rotations are longitudinal and designed to prepare the Resident to confidently practice in all community pharmacy practice areas and pursue a career as a clinical pharmacy practice faculty member.
Throughout the year, the resident will be responsible for:
Distributing medications in the community pharmacy setting
Identifying, evaluating, resolving, and monitoring potential medication-related problems
Three letters of reference (minimum): Reference writers are asked to complete the standard reference form within PhORCAS. Please do not have reference letters mailed to our program as they will not be considered.
