Campbell University’s College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences performed exceptionally well in the 2014-15 ASHP Residency Match for Post-Graduate Pharmacy program. Overall, 22 of 27 Campbell students matched with a residency or fellowship program and will begin their PGY-1 programs in July. Campbell surpassed the national average of 64% with an 81.5% match rate. Over 4,700 pharmacy students participated in the match program for 2014.
“The success of our students is directly related to their planning and preparation facilitated greatly by our faculty,” said D. Byron May, chair of the department of pharmacy practice. “Those faculty spend countless hours mentoring our students and working with them to complete research projects and prepare for interviews.”
Students in this match will be researching and working in Florida, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio Tennessee, and Virginia. In addition to the 22 PGY-1 students, 3 students from the Class of 2013 matched for a PGY-2 residency.
The College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences sponsors 3 PGY-1 residency programs. One is co-sponsored with Harnett Health System, and 2 are rooted in Community Pharmacy with Walgreens. The College offers 2 PGY-2 residency programs in Internal Medicine/Infectious Disease/Academics and Ambulatory Care.
