Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) offers residency programs that prepare you to
become servant leaders within the profession of pharmacy. Our programs are designed
to provide residents with a solid foundation in patient-centered care in a variety
of settings, while focusing on fostering personal and professional leadership. We
are currently the only residency program that actively incorporates faith integration
as one of our core traits. Emphasis within our programs is placed on:
Patient centered care
Our residency program directors and preceptors are dedicated to nurturing resident

of activities longitudinally throughout the residency year: topic discussions, large

participating in the program will be required to submit an electronic teaching portfolio
including a teaching philosophy. Residents successfully completing assigned activities
will be awarded a teaching certificate of completion.
