Curriculum Overview

The curriculum offers broad and balanced experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings, which prepare the resident for a career in pharmacy or further training in any of the pharmacy subspecialties. By the end of the program, graduating residents leave as expert practitioners in the care and treatment of major acute and chronic diseases.

Under the Supervision of full-time faculty, practitioners, pharmacy managers and attending staff, residents participate in daily rounds on each unit. Residents conduct patient interviews, develop treatment plans, and monitor and adjust patient’s therapy. The nature of the program allows residents to learn other specialties as they focus on their own. Additionally, it enables the resident to work with an interdisciplinary team including nurses, physicians, nutritional support staff, social services and patient relations. This experience provides the resident with an understanding of the full range of care and support services available to patients.
