Pharmacy Practice

We are working across many settings of care to optimize medication use for patients, improve patient outcomes and transform the role of the pharmacist in providing patient-centered, team-based care.

Pharmacists as Members of Patient Care Teams



The PGY1 Community-based Pharmacy Residency gives new pharmacists the tools they need to be leaders and innovators in community pharmacy practices.



Ambulatory Care

PGY2 ambulatory care residencies are offered by the School in partnership with the Mountain Area Health Education Center and Mission Health in Asheville, North Carolina.




The Partnership in Patient Care combines the resources of the School and the UNC Hospitals pharmacy department to increase pharmacy services available to patients at UNC Hospitals through enhanced engagement of PharmD students and residents, the quality and quantity of experiential education that students receive, and the breadth and depth of point-of-care research being conducted.

Hospital pharmacy residencies are offered through UNC Hospitals, which provide PGY1 and PGY2 opportunities.




We are engaged in research to advance the future of the profession while improving patient-centered, team-based care delivery across a variety of settings. Current studies include:

  • Opioids
  • Disease state management
  • Comprehensive medication management
  • Building a sustainable business model
  • Precision Dosing
  • Telehealth services
  • Rural health care delivery

Our Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education and Research (CIPhER) focuses on improving the practice of pharmacy education and enhances the scholarship of research on education within the School, nationally and internationally.
