Formation of a Citywide Pharmacy Residents' Collaborative Committee
Pharmacy residents undergo rigorous training to become skillful and knowledgeable independent practitioners. In addition to delivering direct clinical and operational pharmacy services, residents also participate in various administrative, educational, and scholarly activities as part of their residency experience. Throughout their training, residents may rely on individuals within their network for professional, personal, and emotional support, including residency program directors, preceptors, and co-residents from their respective institutions. Residents from nearby institutions can also serve as a vital resource. Throughout the nation, there are numerous pharmacy residency programs located within the same city or region. Fostering collaboration and relationships between residents from neighboring institutions may provide a support network to augment their training and cultivate an environment to promote work-life balance. We describe our 2-year experience in the formation of a citywide "Pharmacy Residents' Collaborative Committee."
