Accreditation to the SHPA Residency Programs ensures hospital sites have the commitment, capacity and capability to offer a broad range of practice-based experiences to pharmacy residents.
SHPA Residency accreditation gives sites access to the support and leadership they need to design and build curriculum relevant to theirs and their residents’ needs.
The SHPA Accreditation Standards for Pharmacy Residency Programs are currently being revised in the lead up to the Advanced Training Residency Program launch.
The revised standards to be comprised of:
- Core Accreditation – for the health service and its pharmacy department to become an SHPA-accredited Residency site
- Program Approval – for the SHPA-accredited Residency site to deliver a residency pathway (Foundation Residency, Advanced Training Residency pathway).
(Sites currently accredited for Foundation Residency only require Program Approval to become an Advanced Training Residency site.)
