Structure of the Program

Residents' plans of study are established from a list of required rotations and elective rotations. Required rotations meet the Accreditation Standards of the Canadian Hospital Pharmacy Residency Board. There are opportunities to sub-specialize in the care of selected patient populations during elective rotations. All pharmacy practice rotations are conducted in a WRHA pharmacy or with a multi-disciplinary team at one or more WRHA facilities. A complete listing of current program rotational requirements can be found here.

Prior learning and work experience, individual preferences and career plans are taken into consideration when creating each resident’s plan of study. Rotations are sequenced to maximize a resident’s learning. Residents are encouraged to select rotations that provide a mix of community and tertiary care experiences. Where possible, rotations, vacation and conference leave are sequenced so that residents have intermittent training breaks.

Requirements for successful completion of the WRHA Pharmacy Practice Residency Program include:

  • Complete required objectives and receive a satisfactory evaluation for all core and elective rotations, demonstrating an understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of selected disease states, and aiding patients that pose selected communication or care challenges.
  • Successfully perform the required number of formal verbal presentations and nursing inservices.
  • Demonstrate an ability to practice independently as a pharmacist.
  • Be licensed to practice as a pharmacist in the province of Manitoba.
  • Be a member of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists.
  • Actively participate in CSHP-sponsored events.
  • Meet all attendance and code of conduct requirements.
  • Complete all necessary evaluation forms and documentation in a timely fashion.
