Program Philosophy

This Psychiatric Pharmacy residency at MUSC develops residents to become competent, board-certified psychiatric clinical pharmacy specialists that serve within any inpatient, outpatient, or academic setting. The training is provided through challenging clinical rotations and longitudinal experiences where residents acquire the knowledge necessary for treatment of mental health and substance use disorders, refine clinical problem-solving skills, strengthen clinical judgment, and advance teaching skills.

Site Special Features

Residency is part of a large academic medical center and residency program (~35 pharmacy residents), affiliated with MUSC College of Pharmacy, and has strong ties to area county mental health centers.
