Complete Your Residency with an Industry Leader
For 50 years, Comprehensive Pharmacy Services (CPS) has been a leader in hospital pharmacy management and clinical consulting. Our company was founded with the mission of providing high quality, cost-effective pharmacy management services that are both client-focused and patient-minded. Today, we are one of the nation’s largest providers of outsourced pharmacy services. Our nearly 2,500 skilled professionals serve nearly 800 clients nationwide.
As a steward of the advancement of pharmacy practice, CPS proudly supports several Pharmacy Residency Programs. These postgraduate training programs are focused on advancing skills in:
- Direct Patient Care
- Patient Care Service Development
- Practice Development
- Operational Excellence
Residents will learn to demonstrate professional leadership and to develop lifelong learning and self-assessment skills. These skill sets can then be applied in future practice settings and professional endeavors.
Each CPS-supported, ASHP-accredited residency program is administered at the individual health system. In addition to the on-site preceptors, CPS corporate team members support residency efforts through participating as preceptors, assisting with resources, and providing travel allotment. CPS is extremely supportive of residency training, as it ensures growth beyond entry-level professional clinical and operational competence, development of leadership skills, and a better workforce.
Residency Requirements and Application
Successful candidates will be graduates of an accredited pharmacy program and licensed to practice pharmacy in the state of Ohio within ninety days (September 30) of program initiation. Residency programs begin in June (date TBD) and last two years. Application is a two-step process.
The majority of the didactic coursework is completed during the first year of the residency program. Residents will also be exposed to several clinical ambulatory, quality, leadership, medication use evaluations, and management experiences. In their second year, residents will complete twelve months of full-time required management and selected clinical and elective rotations. Residents will also be expected to complete a major research project under the supervision of preceptors from Comprehensive Pharmacy Services and faculty members of the College of Pharmacy. This project will be presented at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting (MCM) and the Great Lakes Pharmacy Residency Conference (GLPRC).
