This Safeway Pharmacy/University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Program is based in the San Francisco Bay Area near world class dining, music, entertainment, sports, and cultural amenities. This program will develop your clinical skills in a community setting where you will emerge as a leader in advancing the profession of pharmacy as the scope of pharmacy practice in California has expanded to include medication administration and furnishing a growing list of medications.
Approximately 40% of the resident's time is spent at the home-base community pharmacy site. Both the Dublin and Oakland community sites have a dedicated team of experienced preceptors to mentor the resident through the year. Both sites are located near the Pleasanton Corporate and Division offices where leadership and management learning experiences take place. Our advanced community-based patient care learning experiences are supplemented with ambulatory care-based patient care at UCSF-affiliated hospitals in San Francisco. Through our partnership with UCSF, the resident participates in a teaching certificate program and performs research at the UCSF Parnassus Campus.
Our program’s learning experiences have been specifically designed to ensure you have the skillset necessary not only 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.
PharmD degree and licensure in state of residency required. Official academic transcript, CV, letter of intent, and three letters of recommendation submitted to PhORCAS.
