Mission of the Department of Pharmacy Services

Our mission is to provide safe, comprehensive, high quality, patient specific, pharmaceutical care in an environment of professionalism, respect, and integrity.

Residency Program Statement of Purpose

Our PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY-2) pharmacy residency training.   

Why Temple

PGY-1 Pharmacy Residents will have the opportunity to work in an academic tertiary care center, a community hospital, and a university setting, exposing them to a diverse constituency of patients, healthcare providers, and students. Each resident will have a primary site at one of the Temple University Health System hospitals where their projects, staffing, and management experiences will be centered. The collegial relationship of the Health System and Temple University School of Pharmacy provides excellent opportunities and access to a strong array of faculty preceptors and an exciting learning environment.
