Application Deadline Description: The MS program is linked to an ASHP Accredited PGY1/PGY2 residency program. All applicants MUST complete the ASHP Match program via PhORCAS. Only matched candidates are accepted into the program.
Program Description The University of Kansas Health System offers a 25-month post-PharmD training program specializing in health system pharmacy administration (HSPA). The first year, focusing on pharmacy practice is an organized, directed, postgraduate training program that centers on development of the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed to pursue rational drug therapy. The second year will build on clinical and leadership skills developed in year 1, focusing on patient-centered specialty training in health system pharmacy administration. The residency is designed to provide postgraduate training in the provision of direct patient care to multiple patient populations. Residents will develop effective written and verbal communication skills to provide education to, and interact with, patients, students and a multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers. To help develop leadership skills, in preparation for their own clinical pharmacy practices, the residents will demonstrate and continue to develop their leadership skills through professionalism and a focus on quality improvement. The purpose of the residency is to provide educational and training experiences for pharmacists in the fundamentals of exemplary contemporary pharmacy practice in an integrated healthcare system. Through various clinical, practice management and pharmaceutical practice training segments, the residency instills a philosophy of practice that embraces the concept that pharmacists must be accountable for optimum drug therapy outcomes and act as leaders in advancing care of patients. Residents will receive a Master of Science in pharmacy practice from the University of Kansas. A minimum of 30 hours of coursework is required to be completed during the 2-year residency. Classes are taught through the Health Policy and Management Department, College of Business, College of Pharmacy, and by administrators in the pharmacy department.
