This is a 12 month post-graduate training program aimed at cultivating and bringing forth highly skilled pharmaceutical care providers. Training is built in collaboration with the resident based on his/her interests combining required and elective learning experiences. The resident will be an integral part of the medication use process. The residency will serve to help the resident develop an in-depth understanding of the clinical, distributive, and administrative aspects of pharmacy practice. Through a variety of learning experiences, each resident will gain confidence to effectively function as a member of a multi-disciplinary team. The program will also serve to develop and refine the resident’s writing, presentation, teaching, research, and leadership skills.
