For more than 25 years, University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis has provided individuals with opportunities to participate in residency training programs. Our programs have prepared residents to become clinical pharmacists and pharmacy practice faculty in St. Louis and throughout the country.

Preeminent Medical Facilities

Located in one of the nation’s premier biomedical complexes, the University maintains affiliations with major hospitals, teaching institutions, managed care organizations, and health care corporations throughout the St. Louis area. Collaboration between practice sites and the University provides you with access to dozens of different residency preceptors in a variety of specialties and practice environments.

World-Class Educational Opportunities

The University’s pharmacy residency programs provide opportunities that prepare residents for clinical practice in a range of settings with diverse patient populations and complex disease states. Residents also have co-precepting responsibilities, opportunities to participate in the Resident Education Academy, the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis Teaching & Learning Curriculum, and help educate student pharmacists in the classroom. These additional residency experiences allow you to practice your teaching skills which are necessary for pursuing full-time or adjunct academic positions.  

The University is committed to educating and training world-class pharmacists. Residency training is part of that mission. 

Our Urban Advantage

St. Louis offers the best of both worlds: big city allure with a small town feel. The city is a hub of cultural, educational, and social activity, yet it’s small enough to navigate on your own. Residents can enjoy the excitement of city life or the tranquility of nearby historic neighborhoods, just a few miles from downtown.

Within a block of campus is Forest Park with its 1,300 acres of green space, tennis courts, outdoor ice rink, and golf course. The park is also home to the Saint Louis Art Museum, Missouri History Museum, Saint Louis Zoo, Saint Louis Science Center, and The Muny outdoor theatre.

The Central West End is full of sidewalk cafés, neighborhood pubs, art galleries, antique shops, and trendy boutiques. Across the street from campus is a light rail MetroLink station, providing access to the city’s central corridor. Board the train to shop at Union Station, eat at a café on Laclede’s Landing, or take a tram ride all the way to the top of the Gateway Arch for spectacular views of the city.
