A Clinical Foundation for Leadership in Direct Patient Care

Pharmacy residencies provide the additional experience and specialization that today’s patient-centered health care teams require. Residents receive real-world training to effectively manage increasingly complex drug therapies for patients and work in collaboration with other health care professionals.

A residency can give you a competitive edge by providing the opportunity to build upon the knowledge you have gained in your Pharm.D. program.

  • Health systems prefer pharmacy applicants who have completed a residency.
  • National pharmacy organizations recommend post-graduate training for individuals involved in direct patient care.
  • Some institutions require residency training for pharmacists seeking advanced practice privileges.

For over 20 years, St. Louis College of Pharmacy has offered residency training programs. Our programs have prepared residents to become clinical pharmacists and pharmacy practice faculty in St. Louis and throughout the country.

St. Louis College of Pharmacy maintains affiliations with major hospitals, teaching institutions, managed care organizations, and major health care corporations in the St. Louis area. Collaboration between practice sites and the College provides access to approximately 50 different residency rotations and preceptors.
