All LMPS residents experience these additional program components:

Academic Day Seminars Programs (1-2 sessions/month) - Designed to complement and enhance the residents’ experiential learning throughout the year.

Resident Clinical Advisor Program - We match each resident with one experienced practicing pharmacists who have completed residencies themselves and have volunteered to be an advisor.

Electronic Learning Portfolios - Each resident tracks their learning and development online throughout the program. There’s no better way to reflect on what you’ve learned and document your personal and skill development over the course of the program. 

Web-based scheduling and evaluation (One45) - You’ll always know what’s coming up, what the learning objectives are, and where it’s happening. All evaluations completed during the year are done so online. You’re in touch with what’s happening anytime, anywhere.
