Residency Description

PGY-2 Geriatric Pharmacy Residency 

Program Director: Patricia W. Slattum, Pharm.D., Ph.D.

The VCU School of Pharmacy Geriatric Pharmacy Residency is a 12-month program designed to prepare the resident to provide quality care for older adults in the inpatient, outpatient, and long-term care settings. The program has a focus on community-based care with health disparate older adults. With ample opportunity for teaching and scholarly pursuits, the graduating resident will also be well-suited for a career in academia. The Residency features required rotations to establish a solid foundation of geriatric knowledge and elective rotations to meet the resident’s specific career goals. The resident schedule of activities will depend upon his/her previous experience and areas of interest. This residency is not ASHP-accredited giving us the flexibility to create a one-of-a-kind experience tailored to the resident’s individual needs. For more information contact Dr. Slattum.
