The Massachusetts State Office for Pharmacy Services (SOPS) / CompleteRx Postgraduate Year One Pharmacy Residency is an ASHP-accredited, experiential training program, which strives to develop professionally committed practitioners. The focus is on improving the resident's abilities beyond entry-level competence in clinical and operational pharmacy services, and developing exceptional leadership skills that can be applied in any practice setting. Our mission is to provide each trainee a highly mentored experience in an environment conducive to learning, and aimed at assisting healthcare organizations in achieving positive patient outcomes and maximizing the efficiency of drug utilization, through innovative and effective consulting and service models. In this program, each resident will actively participate in efforts to improve the scope and quality of pharmacy services, and will evaluate the relevant outcomes of such initiatives. As a clinician, the resident will demonstrate knowledge, compassion, and responsibility when caring for patients with a wide variety of disease states in several different healthcare settings. As befits the teaching missions of the sponsoring organizations, each resident will become skilled as an educator of health professionals, students, and the public. Core experiences include operational management, internal medicine, infectious disease, acute medicine, psychiatry, and geriatrics. Longitudinal experiences include practice leadership, corporate drug information, clinical research, as well as involvement in teaching seminars, newsletter development, contribution to statewide pharmacy practice, student preceptorship, and design and delivery of continuing education seminars.
Throughout all experiences, the residents will acquire the skills necessary for lifelong learning and self-assessment. We are vested in the customized development of our residents such that we have retained greater than 50% of residency graduates of our program; first positions of our residency graduates include clinical pharmacist, director of pharmacy, and clinical director of a large healthcare institution.
