The role of the ambulatory outpatient pharmacist continues to grow and evolve, requiring the pharmacist to develop a diverse set of skills in disease set management, practice management, and excellence in communication. Our program aims to train a pharmacist to be able to practice at the top of their license in an outpatient clinical setting in either new or existing practice sites.
Furthermore, graduates will have extensive experience in precepting and teaching, affording them the ability to be excellent preceptors of pharmacy learners and strong teachers in the didactic classroom setting.
At both St. John Fisher College and Rochester Regional Health, we strive to push the profession of pharmacy forward in order to better serve our patients. Throughout the longitudinal rotational experiences, residents will be exposed to disease state management with collaborative drug therapy management, as well as in a consultative role.
