After Completing This Program

Pharmacists completing this residency program will be competent and confident practitioners of direct patient care in multiple practice and patient care environments. They will be able to identify and resolve potential and actual patient-specific, drug-related problems and will be accountable for achieving optimal drug therapy outcomes as members of a healthcare team.

Our residents will also become skilled educators, both verbally and in writing, of health care professionals, students, patients and the community. They will demonstrate professional maturity by independently following a personal philosophy of practice, monitoring their own performance, exhibiting commitment to the profession and exercising leadership in improving the safety of the medication-use system.

As highly trained professionals, our residents will be well prepared to compete in today's job market upon completion of our residency program.
