Our postgraduate residency programs provide essential clinical training for advancement within the profession of pharmacy.

A pharmacy residency is an organized, directed, postgraduate training program in a defined area of pharmacy practice. It provides the knowledge and experience that pharmacy practitioners need to face challenges in today's complex health care environment, while also providing essential skills to meet the practice demands of the future.

Our residency training programs are accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) and offer numerous advantages over freestanding programs. Our residents:

  • are enrolled in a teaching certificate program, didactic research class and journal club;
  • complete a research project presented in the spring of your residency year;
  • have access to a world-class, online medical library;
  • receive travel support and an excellent benefit package!

Many employers indicate a strong preference for individuals who have completed an ASHP-accredited residency.
