PGY1 Community Pharmacy

Residency Programs

PGY1 Community Pharmacy

CPHS is offering two community pharmacy residencies during the 2014-2015 academic year. One of the residencies is offered in conjunction with Kerr Drug, located in Fuquay-Varina, N.C., and the second through Walgreens, located in Raleigh, N.C.

Program

The PGY1 community pharmacy residencies at CPHS are located in community pharmacies and are dedicated to the ideal of developing advanced level pharmacists who are prepared to design, develop, implement, and manage quality community pharmaceutical care practices. The Community Pharmacy Residency Program at Campbell University was granted accreditation by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP)/ American Pharmacists Association (APhA) in August 2001. This recognition, the first for a community residency program in North Carolina and only the eighth in the country, assures candidates and future employers that nationally mandated standards of performance and quality have been met. We are proud of this accomplishment, which reflects a commitment to provide a quality program.

Residency Objectives

Residency objectives may be tailored to match the interests, background, and skills and support the career objectives of the resident. They generally center around five areas of activity:

  • Patient Care Services (40-60%)
  • Drug Information (10-15%)
  • Teaching and Training (15-20%)
  • Practice Development and Management (10-15%)
  • Community and Professional Involvement (5-10%)

Clinical Experience

The resident will spend a major portion of his/her time providing direct care and education to patients. This will be both at the pharmacy and in affiliated practice sites. The resident will also be involved with the marketing of these services. Each resident will be expected to develop and implement additional services as well as to expand existing services. Additional clinical experience may be gained through various elective rotations.

Teaching

The resident will learn the fundamentals of teaching during a teaching development series. These teaching skills will be applied during the Nonprescription Therapeutics course for second-year Doctor of Pharmacy students in didactic and case discussion sessions, as well as in various Pharmaceutical Care Skills Lab sessions. The resident assists in precepting Doctor of Pharmacy fourth-year students and has opportunities for providing continuing education programs for patients and healthcare practitioners. A certificate will be awarded to residents who complete the teaching development series.

Research

The resident will develop and complete a residency research project. The project will be presented at the Southeastern Residency Conference.

Benefits

The residency provides a stipend of approximately $42,000. Additionally, the resident will be provided with health insurance, professional liability insurance, and ten vacation days. Professional leave is available for attending various pharmacy meetings and interviews.
