Community Pharmacy Residencies

The Purdue University College of Pharmacy Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Community Pharmacy Residency Programs are one-year postgraduate training programs focused on advancing patient care services and practice management skills in one of six community locations throughout Indiana.  They include a variety of types of community practices, each of which work closely with Purdue faculty to develop personalized residency experiences which include teaching, research, and patient care activities.

There are currently six community pharmacy residency programs affiliated with the Purdue University College of Pharmacy, offered by the following locations:

  • Dr. Aziz Pharmacy (Indianapolis, IN)
  • Fagen Pharmacy (Valparaiso, IN)
  • Kroger Pharmacy (Indianapolis, IN)
  • Mathes Pharmacy (New Albany, IN)
  • Walgreens Pharmacy (Indianapolis, IN)
  • HealthLinc (Valparaiso, IN)

Each residency provides extensive experience in community-based patient care, including medication therapy management and disease state management activities; management/leadership activities; patient-centered prescription processing; teaching; and practice-based research.  Residents receive significant mentoring to develop clinical practice skills.  Residents from each program have the opportunity for networking and shared learning through joint participation in a formal research project development discussion series and a teaching certificate program.
