Lower Mainland Pharmacy Services
In the summer of 2011, the Vancouver Coastal Health, Providence Health Care, Fraser Health, and BC Children's & Women's pharmacy practice residency programs integrated to become a single program, the Lower Mainland Pharmacy Services (LMPS) Pharmacy Practice Residency Program.
With over 40 years of experience in training pharmacy residents, and the largest and most dedicated and experienced group of preceptors and mentors in some of the most prominent teaching hospitals in Canada, the LMPS Pharmacy Practice Residency Program deserves your consideration.
LMPS Pharmacy Practice Residents have the opportunity to undertake and conduct a research project during their program year. With the opportunity to develop and hone their project management skills, residents are involved and responsible for all aspects of their research project, including protocol development, data collection, analysis and interpretation.
With the completion of their research projects, residents and their project preceptors showcase their work at our annual Residency Research Night held at the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Our LMPS residents are the heart of our program. For the 2016-17 cycle, we will be offering 30 positions in the LMPS Practice Residency Program, 23 of which will be adult-focused residency positions, and 7 pediatric-focused positions. In 2017-18, we will have 31 positions in the program, 28 are adult-focused and 3 are pediatric-focused positions.
Many of our pharmacists within LMPS are directly involved in teaching, mentoring, and precepting our residents. We are a committed and experienced group including a number of Canada's most respected clinicians and leaders in our profession. The ongoing commitment and support of our many dedicated preceptors and mentors is nothing short of exceptional.
