ONU, Kroger team up for Pharmacy Residency Program
Ohio Northern University’s Raabe College of Pharmacy and Kroger have teamed up to launch the Kroger-ONU Post-Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) Community Pharmacy Residency Program.
Qualified postgraduate, first-year residents will spend time at designated area Kroger pharmacies to experience innovative patient-care opportunities, including medication and therapy management, biometric wellness screenings, immunizations, and 340B pharmacy services.
Residents will spend additional time at ONU working with the ONU HealthWise Disease State Management program, participating in longitudinal ambulatory care experience, specializing in diabetes care, conducting research and teaching.
Those interested in participating in the program must have a doctorate of pharmacy degree and be eligible for pharmacist licensure in the state of Ohio.
The purpose of PGY1 residency programs is to provide the opportunity to accelerate the individual’s growth beyond entry-level professional competence in patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services and to further the development of leadership skills that can be applied in any practice setting. Residency programs benefit the community by introducing new health care services through pharmacies. Other health-related programs have included pharmacy-based immunizations, health screenings, and wellness coaching.
