The purpose of the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy/Giant Eagle Pharmacy PGY1 Community Practice Residency Program is to prepare the resident for a career as a leader in clinical community pharmacy practice, in corporate pharmacy-level management, or as a school of pharmacy adjunct faculty member. The program is designed to utilize the strengths and resources of a chain drug store, a university, and a corporate pharmacy setting which all share a common mission to promote the health and wellness of the community and to enhance pharmacy practice. The community practice resident will gain clinical experiences in programs such as medication therapy management (MTM) services, diabetes education, vaccine administration, and health screenings. In addition, the resident will have the opportunity to learn about pharmacy practice administration on the corporate level and about the design and implementation of various clinical programs. Duquesne University School of Pharmacy provides the resident experiences in developing teaching and research skills necessary to serve as an educator and preceptor of student pharmacists.
