Frequently Asked Questions

  • What types of teaching opportunities are available? Do you have a teaching certificate program?

    Our residency program is affiliated with Washington State University College of Pharmacy to offer an optional foundational or advanced teaching certificate. As a resident, you'll have teaching opportunities throughout the curriculum, including: didactic lectures, small group teaching in Pharmaceutical Care Laboratory, and assistance with precepting 4th-year students on rotations. In the broadest sense, our affiliation encourages an academically motivated environment and our residents can obtain adjunct faculty status as clinical instructors.

Residents that are not licensed by August 10 will have staffing delayed until they are licensed and previously scheduled staffing hours will need to be made up once licensed.
