The Temple University School of Pharmacy has a rich history of post-doctoral training programs for pharmacists. Our faculty have been preceptors for the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program for Temple University Health System since its inception in 1969 and direct the PGY2 residencies since 2007. Students and pharmacy residents with an interest in clinical and didactic teaching enjoy our dynamic setting and abundance of resources.

We are located on the Temple University Health Sciences Center Campus with Temple University Hospital, its attendant clinics, and the Temple Outpatient Pharmacy. Many of our faculty practice there and collaborate with the physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals in a setting that allows for an inspiring and challenging ceducational and clinical experience.

Purpose of Pharmacy Residency

Pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy education and contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. 

PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
