Common Elements to all MWU-CPG Postgraduate Training Programs

All MWU-CPG postgraduate training programs share common elements. First, Residents in these programs spend one day each week on campus (usually Thursday). In addition, all Residents are required to complete a research project. Finally, all Residents receive an appointment as a Visiting Instructor within the Department of Pharmacy Practice and are provided dedicated space at the College.

Teaching and Learning Activities

Residents implement what they have learned through the Teaching and Learning Seminar Series (TLSS) and The Clinician Educators Program (CEP) through teaching in the classroom and in the clinical setting. Residents provide instruction in small group workshops and large group didactic settings (i.e., lectures). Residents serve as a preceptor or co-preceptor for students on an Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (i.e., clerkship rotation).
