What is a Residency?

Pharmacy Residency is a period of time during which a pharmacy intern or licensed pharmacist engages in organized, supervised, advanced training in the delivery of pharmacy services.

In Canada, pharmacy residency programs are practice-based and voluntary. They are usually full-time programs of 12 months duration. Through structured rotations in pharmacy practice, education, research and administration, residency programs prepare pharmacists for challenging and innovative advanced practice roles.

"Residency training programs have been a well-spring of leadership for innovation and change in professional pharmacy practice . . ."

- Paul G. Pierapoli, AJHP 1990; 47: 113
