ALEXANDRIA, Va. — In an effort to create 30 new community pharmacy residency positions by funding programs across the nation, the charitable arm of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores announced the grant application, review and approval process for its Community Pharmacy Residency Expansion Project.
The NACDS Foundation said that Community PREP, which first was announced in December 2010, will award 15 grants to nonprofit academic institutions, totaling $50,000 each.
“The NACDS Foundation is pleased to provide this much-needed funding to create and expand community pharmacy residency programs throughout the United States,” NACDS Foundation president Edith Rosato said. “These patient-focused residency programs will help cultivate pharmacy graduates’ abilities to provide innovation in the delivery of patient care services under the expert guidance of community pharmacy preceptors.”
