The purpose of this program is to develop pharmacists’ skills in disease state management, pharmacy operations, and quality improvement. Under expert guidance, our residents will build foundational clinical skills in a variety of settings which may include Primary Care, Anticoagulation, Mental Health, Substance Abuse treatment, and Diabetes Clinic settings. Upon completion, residents will be qualified for primary care practice or prepared for PGY-2 training to specialize further.
