Pharmacy Residency Program Pharmacy Program Overview
Boulder Community Health will welcome its second class of pharmacy residents
in July of 2018. The PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds
on the Doctor of Pharmacy education and outcomes to contribute to the
development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related
care of patients with a wide range of conditions, to prepare them for
board certification, and postgraduate year two pharmacy residency training.
The 12-month candidate ASHP post-graduate program is designed to provide
two residents each year with the knowledge, abilities, experience, attitude
and critical thinking skills necessary to become leaders in integrated
health-system pharmacy practice. The program is structured to allow the
resident to develop skills in many areas based on ASHP accreditation standards
as well as individual need and preference.
The pharmacy residency provides experience in a variety of settings including,
direct patient care, informatics, medication safety and practice management
while also allowing flexibility to meet individual preferences. The program
is staffed by highly trained and respected clinical practitioners who
are allotted dedicated time in their area of practice.
