Overview

Overview

Our residency programs provide education and training with a primary emphasis on the development of practice skills in a number of specialized pharmacy practice areas. Throughout the year, residents are involved in a variety of service, education, and research activities. During this training, residents learn to conduct patient care activities using a consistent approach that reflects the philosophy of pharmaceutical care.

In addition to clinical activities, residents are involved in educational programs, including pharmacy conferences, journal clubs and a seminar presentation. Other teaching opportunities include medical and nursing in-services, as well as co-precepting students from colleges of pharmacy. Research skills are developed through experience and enhanced by instruction as residents complete a research project and/or drug use evaluation. Residents attend the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, a Residency Conference, and have the opportunity to attend and participate in other state and local conferences.
