Program is a partnership with Wallgreens
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Nov. 9, 2016) — The Sullivan University College of Pharmacy’s community pharmacy residency program operated in conjunction with Walgreens has been fully accredited by the American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (ASHP) Commission on Credentialing.
The Walgreens Community Pharmacy Residency Program is a postgraduate training opportunity for pharmacy school graduates to obtain their residency experience and requirements while enhancing their skill set in the community pharmacy setting at Walgreens locations in the Louisville area.
“Achieving a residency accreditation such as this helps validate our program and the program’s commitment to continued excellence,” said Dr. Cindy Stowe, Dean of the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy (SUCOP).
Graduates of the program participate in outpatient pharmacy services, such as patient counseling, immunization services, travel health, disease state management and medication therapy management. In addition, residents in this program also gain focused experience in specialty pharmacy practice and working with established HIV programs in the area.
The three year accreditation was granted following a March site visit to the program by ASHP, in partnership with the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), as well as the program’s response to the findings of the site visit, said Sullivan College of Pharmacy Residency Program Coordinator Dr. Holly Byrnes.
