The Postgraduate/Continuing Education Program (PGCE) sponsors and cosponsors many types of programs. PGCE offers regional, statewide, and a limited number of national and international seminars, workshops, certificate programs, and residency programs to advance pharmaceutical care knowledge and skills. The PGCE Program predominantly partners with the nine regional Area Health Education Centers and the North Carolina Association of Pharmacists to assist the state’s pharmacists in advancing their practices.
The PGCE Program realizes that increasing pharmacist involvement in interprofessional collaborative practices will maximize their patients’ health outcomes. Therefore, increasing effort is being dedicated toward a range of educational programs that promote pharmaceutical care within such collaborative practices—primarily through certificate programs and community pharmacy residencies.
The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy complies with the Accreditation Council For Pharmacy Education’s Criteria for Quality for continuing education programming. Statements of continuing education credit issued to program participants indicate CE hours based on verified attendance.
