Abstract

Purpose: To describe the structure and functions of a pharmacy residency advisory committee (RAC) that manages the postgraduate years 1 and 2 programs in a large teaching institution.

Summary: Residency programs are faced with increasing number of residents and expanding specialty programs that increase the complexity of managing the diverse residency programs and require additional time commitments in order to maintain high quality learning, practice. Therefore, residency programs require a focused and centralized approach via the establishment of a pharmacy residency committee that oversees the residency programs and steers them in the right direction. Under the direction of RAC, collaborative approach between pharmacy staff, clinicians, faculty, and managers is essential to the successful management of the staffing, clinical, academic, and professional development of pharmacy residents.

Conclusion: Pharmacy residency programs in Saudi Arabia can be successfully managed by the coordination of efforts between preceptors and residents under the oversight of RAC.
