The resident will learn how to take responsibility for the outcomes of medication use by their patients through patient interviews, evaluation, assessment, and monitoring. The resident will be trained in distributive services, business administration, health and wellness interventions, immunizations, disease state education and monitoring, medication therapy management services, point of care testing, documentation of services, and billing. This will provide residents the confidence to practice in all areas of community pharmacy while remaining patient-centered clinicians.

PROGRAM MISSION

The FAMU/CHNWF Residency program is committed to training pharmacists by providing a well-rounded, customized, immersive experience. Residents become culturally competent and transformational leaders in providing collaborative medication management services to improve care for diverse patients regardless of age, sexual orientation, race, religion, and socio-economic status. 

PROGRAM VISION

The FAMU/CHNWF Residency program strives to promote a customized experience for the resident in a clinically diverse environment. We look to develop a culturally competent leader in medication therapy management and develop and retain pharmacist-providers who are compassionate, empathetic, and thoughtful residents and preceptors involved in advanced clinical care, impactful research, and patient and professional advocacy.

LEARNING EXPERIENCES

Each learning experience may have multiple preceptors that work as a team to provide patient care activities. The term primary preceptor designates the department team member who provides primary preceptorship to the resident on any given learning experience. The primary preceptor is responsible for the development and maintenance of goals, objectives, and activities for the assigned areas of responsibility. The preceptor will review the resident's learning activities at the beginning of the resident's experience to designate the resident's specific interests and needs. The primary preceptor is responsible for enforcing deadlines for project activities in accordance with the Residency Program calendar. Click button below to learn more
