Pharmaceutical Care Leadership Residency

Pharmaceutical Care Leadership Residency

The College's leadership efforts extend beyond the professional program. In 1999, the College committed to the development of leadership through a unique, two-year residency program.

The Pharmaceutical Care Leadership Residency is an ambulatory practice residency designed to prepare graduates for leadership in the direct delivery of medication therapy management services to patients, development of fiscally sustainable MTM practices, practice-based scholarship, and effective education of the principles of patient care delivery to student pharmacists and pharmacy practitioners.

A detailed description of this 2-year residency experience is available via Medscape.
