Northeastern University School of Pharmacy and Walgreens Pharmacy Community Pharmacy Residency Program, PGY1: Boston, Massachusetts
The mission of the Northeastern University (NEU) Community Pharmacy Residency Program is to develop well-rounded, confident, effective and innovative community pharmacy practitioners who will advance the profession and improve community health by providing superior patient care in a financially sustain- able manner. Graduates of this program will be qualified to accept positions as clinical pharmacists in the community pharmacy setting. In addition, Walgreens seeks to enable residents to achieve their professional goals, become a leader within the profession, provide compassionate care for members of their communities and contribute to the Walgreen Company’s advancement in healthcare.
The residency program is based at the Walgreens Pharmacy located within the internationally known Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Massachusetts. This premier pharmacy location offers a variety of innovative clinical pharmacy services for patients who are prescribed complex therapies for HIV/AIDS, oncolo- gy, transplant and diabetes. The community pharmacists at this site work closely with an interdisciplinary group of providers, patients, and the community to provide optimal drug therapy for patients. In addition, residents gain insights on management issues that can affect the implementation of patient care services in the community pharmacy setting. There will also be the opportunity to develop HIV services at a Walgreens pharmacy in Mattapan and at a new Walgreens pharmacy in the Downtown Crossing section of Boston. This new pharmacy will adopt the Well Experience model that Walgreens is introducing across the country.
