The UNE PGY1 Community-Based Residency Program is a partnership with the University of New England, Hannaford Pharmacy and Martin's Point Health Care. Our residency program is unique because of the breadth of clinical, teaching and leadership opportunities. Our mission is to educate residents by creating a culture of support, accountability and innovation. The program seeks to develop and refine clinical and didactic teaching skills, foster leadership and engage the resident in direct patient care and scholarly activity for the purpose of advancing the roles of the pharmacist in the community pharmacy setting and enhancing the profession as a whole. Hannaford is the preferred pharmacy provider for the Martin's Point Generations Advantage Plan, Maine and New Hampshire's only 5-star Medicare plan. Provide direct patient care and lead change across the healthcare plan and pharmacy chain to improve patient outcomes.
The UNE PGY1 Community Pharmacy Residency Program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) 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 postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training. Pharmacist residency education and training in community-based practice aims to develop pharmacy leaders who are capable of improving the health of patients within the communities they serve. The primary purpose of the program is to foster the development of community-based pharmacist practitioners who are community-focused practice leaders, serving as an access point for care and having the skillset necessary to provide quality generalist patient care services wherever health and medication needs arise.
