The Community Pharmacy Residency (PGY-1) is a one-year program designed to provide diverse experiences in pharmaceutical care in the community practice setting. This program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for post-graduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training. The program offers advanced training in optimizing the care of diverse patient populations as they transition from a health system setting. Graduates of the program are prepared to provide advanced patient care services in the community pharmacy with independent, chain, and integrated health systems pharmacies. Completion of the teaching certificate program through Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) qualifies the residency graduate for assistant or clinical professorship through joint faculty with a college of pharmacy. Community pharmacy staffing is required throughout the year, including a weekend rotation. In addition to presentations and projects, residents are required to complete a large project and submit a manuscript for publication. Required residency learning experiences include community pharmacy, anticoagulation, primary care, medication therapy management, ambulatory leadership, managed care/employee health plan, and drug information, specialty pharmacy, transitional care management, and HIV ambulatory care clinic.
