About the CPRP
Community pharmacy residencies are one year postgraduate training programs focused on advancing skills in direct patient care, patient care service development, and practice management.
The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy offers you an outstanding combination of experience and innovation in community pharmacy residency. Our PGY1 program is one of the oldest accredited programs of its kind and has a proven track record of preparing new pharmacists to be leaders and innovators in community-pharmacy practice. Our PGY2 program, established in 2009, was the nation’s first PGY2 residency in community pharmacy and focuses on preparing community pharmacists for success as faculty members at schools of pharmacy. Our practice sites offer progressive community pharmacy settings with experienced practitioners as your preceptors and partners, while the School provides support from dedicated faculty members at one of the nation’s leaders in pharmacy education.
Resident pharmacists learn to develop business plans that focus on creating viable clinical services that benefit both the patient and the business. Offerings such as immunization services and medication therapy management can improve patients' health as well as a pharmacy's bottom line. The clinical services developed by community pharmacy residents can increase foot traffic, customer loyalty, and revenue and demonstrate a pharmacy's commitment to progressive patient care.
Community pharmacy residency programs are accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in partnership with the American Pharmacists Association. You can learn more about these programs by visiting the APhA Web site.
