The purpose of the ASHP-Accredited Sibley Pharmacy Practice Residency Program is to develop pharmacists who are valued members of the healthcare team, achieving optimal drug therapy outcomes through the application of their knowledge.
The pharmacy practice residency offers a variety of core rotations (internal medicine, critical care, hematology/oncology, informatics, drug information, central operations, management & geriatrics), longitudinal experiences (ambulatory care, research, central operations & management), and elective rotations. The program provides flexibility for the residents to focus on individual interests and career goals. Each rotation is four to six weeks long.
The resident gains skills to become a confident, caring, and well-rounded direct patient care provider. Residents will also participate in Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee activities, Medication Safety Committee activities, medication use evaluations, and provide education to pharmacists, nurses, physicians, and patients. A major project suitable for publication is required.
