Walgreens Community Pharmacy Residency Program is a postgraduate training opportunity for pharmacists to enhance their skill set in the community pharmacy setting. The residency is academically affiliated and supported, in part, by the Purdue University College of Pharmacy. The majority of the residency experience will be located in Indianapolis, Indiana. This residency will allow the pharmacist to build on their professional skills by providing a variety of patient care services, including specialty pharmacy services.
Pharmacists in this setting will have a direct influence on patient outcomes through participation in patient counseling, im-munization services, Medication Therapy Management, patient adherence, transitions of care, and specialty pharmacy. Residents will also work to develop collaborations with providers, public health, and other area organizations to help im-prove the quality of patient care. The resident will complete a teaching certificate program and will assist in teaching oppor-tunities and precepting experiences for Purdue University College of Pharmacy. The residency program graduates will be leaders in the pharmacy community setting and will have an active role in advancing community pharmacy practice.
