CHSU Pharmacy Student Residency Program Matches

CHSU Pharmacy Student Residency Program Matches

For eight CHSU Doctor of Pharmacy students, Match Day 2021 moves them closer to their careers in specialty pharmacy. By earning a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree, a graduate can begin pharmacy practice after passing their board licensing exams. However, some pharmacists choose to practice specialty pharmacy like pediatrics and oncology and residency programs provide this additional training. Congratulations to the following future pharmacists who matched with a residency program in the first round!
