Project/Research is a required, 12-month, longitudinal learning experience.

Each resident must develop and complete at least one major research project on an element of pharmacy practice with potential outcomes that benefit patients and/or the organization. The primary purpose of the learning experience is to provide each resident with experience in development, research, analysis, implementation, and presentation of a major research project.

The resident will identify and design a project, collect and analyze data and develop a timeline for project completion. The project will be formally presented at the Midwest Pharmacy Resident's Conference. Residents may also be asked to present the results of their projects to the pharmacy staff and/or other interested organizational or community groups. Each resident shall submit a project manuscript of publishable form to the project preceptor and RPD.
