Sinai’s Pharmacy Residency Program boasts innovative programs to create a new residency learning experience with entitled transitions of care. It exposes the graduate pharmacist to the steps necessary to ensuring a successful transition from home to hospital, then back to home again. Caring for such transitions has been a recent focus of pharmacy practice and health care in general. The need for competent and knowledgeable pharmacists who are able to execute these functions is key to the optimization of pharmacotherapy in the peri-hospitalization period..
