Program highlights: The CAMH pharmacy residency program focuses on the provision of pharmaceutical care in an addictions and mental health setting. Given the nature of the patient population, there is significant involvement in the management of common medical conditions, in addition to mental health issues. The core rotations include practice management, drug information, medication use evaluation, medication use systems, as well as, direct patient care rotations through key areas including schizophrenia and continuing care; mood and anxiety; substance use disorder; general psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry. There are also elective rotations available where the resident may choose to experience other programs, e.g., such as Law and Mental Health. A rotation in general medicine is also offered at a local teaching hospital. A research project is a program requirement. The resident will have the opportunity to participate in teaching activities on site and at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy.

Minimum required credentials: Completion of Bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from an accredited program.
