This Safeway Pharmacy/University of Maryland Program is based in Lanham Maryland, close to Washington DC and Baltimore, both famous for their history, sports, food, and culture. Our Safeway Pharmacy leadership work closely with state, local, and national pharmacy organizations to advance pharmacy practice. Our pharmacists can administer and prescribe a growing list of medications, immunizations, perform health screenings, and work as a member of the healthcare team to manage patient disease states.
The resident is assigned a home-base community pharmacy site where approximately 40% of time is spent. The Ellicott City community site has a dedicated team of experienced preceptors to mentor the resident through the year. Leadership and management learning experiences take place at the Lanham Division office. Our advanced community-based patient care learning experiences are supplemented with ambulatory care-based patient care at the clinics and hospitals affiliated with the University of Maryland Baltimore. Through our partnership with the University of Maryland, the resident participates in a teaching certificate program, and performs research at the college.
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.
