Our residency program is geared toward students who are interested in becoming pharmacy leaders inside and outside of a health system. Fundamental to this training, we believe it is important to have a balance between clinical and administrative experiences. Our program is designed to prepare residents to become effective and successful pharmacy leaders with a strong clinical foundation. We do this by providing a breadth of clinical and administrative experiences with leaders in pharmacy administration and passionate clinicians focused on research, patient care optimization, and quality improvement. Upon completion of the program, residents will be prepared to accept leadership positions in settings throughout any health-system enterprise. Our goal in training you is to provide you with a translatable skill set so that will set you up for success no matter where your professional career takes you. Residents will earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from UC Davis. Coursework will be completed during the 2-year residency. Completion of the MBA program will align with the end of the second-year residency program. Graduate student tuition is paid for by UC Davis.
