Walgreens and St. Louis College of Pharmacy are committed to providing the PGY1 community pharmacy resident with  an exceptional postgraduate educational training experience. The purpose of this ASHP and APhA-accredited residency  program is to provide the resident with the experience and ability to provide, advance and evaluate patient care services

Furthermore,  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 main practice site for the resident is a Walgreens pharmacy, located approximately one mile from the St. Louis College  of Pharmacy campus. This pharmacy has a separate patient care area-located adjacent to the dispensing pharmacy-  that offers unique opportunities to practice advanced patient care in a variety of disease states. The resident will  have the opportunity to gain experience providing specialty care to patients at a Walgreens pharmacy within both a specialty  pharmacy and a clinic-based setting. Upon completion, the resident will have acquired an advanced skill set and  be prepared to assume a leadership role in advancing the profession of pharmacy and community pharmacy practice.
