This trend is strongly supported by Colleges of Pharmacy having a philosophy stressing the importance of these programs. Pharmacy students interested in residency training strive for more knowledge and experience, and a better understanding of the new and challenging roles for pharmacists in the future.” states Dr. McCarthy, Jr.
