Pharmacy Residency Programs

Pharmacy in Glendale

Midwestern University College of Pharmacy, Glendale Campus (MWU-CPG) offers postgraduate training programs to meet the needs of the pharmacist in the evolving health care environment. These programs offer challenging learning and practice experiences to develop the individual strengths of the resident, while advancing the role of the pharmacist in the health care team. The patient care opportunities and experiences in evaluating pharmacy practice models allow the resident increasing autonomy as the year(s) progress(es).

Common Elements to all MWU-CPG Postgraduate Training Programs

All MWU-CPG postgraduate training programs share common elements. First, residents in these programs spend one day each week on campus (usually Thursday) and are required to complete a research project. All residents receive an appointment as a Visiting Instructor within the Department of Pharmacy Practice and are provided dedicated space at the College.

Teaching and Learning Activities

Residents implement what they have learned through the Teaching and Learning Seminar Series (TLSS) and The Clinician Educators Program (CEP) through teaching in the classroom and in the clinical setting. Residents provide instruction in small group workshops and large group didactic settings (i.e., lectures). Residents serve as a preceptor or co-preceptor for students on an Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (i.e., clerkship rotation).
