Walgreens Community-Based 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 financially supported, in part, by the Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. This residency will allow the pharmacist to build on their professional skills by providing a variety of patient care services.
Pharmacists in this setting will have a direct influence on patient outcomes through participation in patient counseling, immunization services, health testing services, and Medication Therapy Management with a specific emphasis on patient adherence. Residents will also work to develop collaboration with area providers and develop innovative clinical pharmacy services for patients who are prescribed complex therapies. Residents will also complete a rotation at a Walgreens Specialty pharmacy to gain experiences in disease states including HIV, Hepatitis C, and chronic inflammatory disease. The resident will complete a teaching certificate program and will assist in teaching opportunities and precepting experiences for the Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. The residency program graduates will be leaders in the pharmacy community and will have an active role in advancing community pharmacy practice.
