This ACME Pharmacy program is based in southeastern Pennsylvania, close to Philadelphia, home to museums, parks, national historic sites, sports, and famous food. Our ACME pharmacists can furnish and administer a growing list of medications, administer routine and travel immunizations, perform health screenings, and work as a member of the healthcare team to manage patient disease states.
Each resident is assigned a home-base community pharmacy site where approximately 40% of time is spent. Both the Flourtown and Media community sites have a dedicated team of experienced preceptors to mentor the resident through the year. Leadership and management learning experiences take place at the division office in Malvern. Our advanced community-based patient care learning experiences are supplemented with ambulatory care-based patient care at Crozer-Keystone Medical Center and clinics affiliated with each of our college partners: Temple University and the University of the Sciences. Our residents also participate in teaching certificate programs at their affiliated college and participate in the statewide TOP TIER community residency research series.
Our program’s learning experiences have been specifically designed not only to ensure you have the skillset necessary for success immediately upon graduation, but also in the near-future when pharmacy practice has further advanced. These learning experiences allow room for adjustment based on your strengths, interests, development opportunities, and future goals.
Pharm.D. degree and licensure in state of residency required. Official academic transcript, CV, letter of intent, and three letters of recommendation submitted to PhORCAS.
