Pharmacy residencies are 12-month postgraduate training programs that center on the development of knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to promote rational drug therapy and direct patient care services. Specialized residency programs include an emphasis on optimizing patient outcomes in a focused area of healthcare and a commitment to prepare a new generation for leadership within the specialty area of the pharmacy profession.
Our residents distinguish themselves through extensive experience gained in patient care, teaching, and research.
The University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy offers pharmacy practice and specialized pharmacy residencies in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), the UPMC Health Plan, CVS, Caremark, Chartwell Pennsylvania, Giant Eagle, LP, RxPartners, Inc. and Rite Aid. It is through these partnerships that the Residency Program has grown in national reputation.
