Benefits of a WRHA Residency

The WRHA Pharmacy Practice Residency Program has successfully trained pharmacy practice leaders since 1981. Most graduates are employed in advanced practice positions in the Winnipeg Region or at other major hospitals in Canada. Many residents have gone on to pursue additional degrees or certificates.

Graduates of the WRHA program are entitled to use the ACPR (Accredited Canadian Pharmacy Resident) designation after their name. Some employers recognize the ACPR designation by providing an educational allowance or higher pay rate on a set scale at the point of hiring. The College of Pharmacists of Manitoba recognizes the ACPR credential among the qualifications for registration as an extended practice pharmacist.

Several local, regional and national awards have recognized WRHA residents’ projects. Graduates of the WRHA Pharmacy Residency Program are often invited to speak at local, regional, and national pharmacy meetings.
