This Safeway Pharmacy/Midwestern University – College of Pharmacy Glendale Program is based in the Phoenix metropolitan area with near perfect year-round weather, music, culture, outdoor recreation, sports, and dining. Our Safeway Pharmacy leadership work closely with the Arizona Board of Pharmacy and the Arizona Pharmacy Association to advance pharmacy practice. Our pharmacists can administer a growing list of medications, 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 Sun City West and West Phoenix community sites have a dedicated team of experienced preceptors to mentor the resident through the year. Both sites are located near to the Deer Valley 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 the Mission of Mercy clinic, serving the uninsured and working poor of Maricopa County. Through our partnership with Midwestern University – College of Pharmacy Glendale, the resident participates in the Clinicians Educators Program, a teaching and learning curriculum, 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.
