University of Iowa PGY1 Community-based Pharmacy Residency
Location: Iowa City, Iowa
The PGY1 Community-based Pharmacy Residency Program offered by The Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science at The University of Iowa College of Pharmacy is designed to assist graduate pharmacists in developing specialized clinical skills in the community pharmacy setting. Established in 1997, the residency is a collaboration of the College and innovative practitioners, and has graduated over 100 residents.
This residency offers five unique community pharmacy practice sites and residents are matched to the site that best fits their interest. Sites include MercyOne Pharmacy in Dubuque, Iowa, HyVee Pharmacy in Iowa City, IA, Greenwood Pharmacy in Waterloo, Iowa, Osterhaus Pharmacy in Maquoketa, IA, and Towncrest Pharmacy in Iowa City, IA.
Community pharmacy residents spend 2/3 of their time provide patient care services in the community pharmacy or affiliated practices. Patient care services include disease state management, medication therapy management, immunizations, health and wellness, and transitions of care.
Residents participate in the Pharmacy Educator Preparation Program for Residents (PEPPR) to learn teaching philosophy and techniques and can apply those skills in educating Doctor of Pharmacy students, other health care providers, and patients.
Residents complete a practice-based research project with the guidance of UI College of Pharmacy Health Service Research Faculty and participate in a peer review writing group with other community residents.
Residents utilize the Pharmacist Patient Care process during patient-centered dispensing to achieve optimal medication management for each individual patient.
Residents are mentored in leadership and management components by nationally recognized preceptors and learn innovative business models.
