Community Residency Program
At the leading edge of innovative practice, leadership, and research in pharmacy with the goal of furthering patient centered care for those in Washington State and beyond.
PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build 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.
Located in metropolitan Seattle, with a population of approximately 3,500,000 our Program resides in a State that was the very first to pass the Provider Status Law for pharmacists. Continuing on this upward trajectory, the UW School of Pharmacy is committed to being a leader in healthcare that results in greater quality, access, and affordable care for patients in our own State and elsewhere.
The University of Washington School of Pharmacy Community Pharmacy Residency is designed to be a comprehensive postgraduate experience that advances a pharmacist’s education and training in drug therapy and disease management for patients in the community/ambulatory setting.
The residency prepares pharmacists to be leaders and excellent providers of patient care in a rapidly changing health care environment. It provides opportunities for integrating the pharmaceutical care practice model and practice-based outcomes research in community/ambulatory settings.
Resident candidates in the program(s) will be appointed as Clinical Instructors at the University of Washington School of Pharmacy.
