    Yes! I am interested in hearing more about it actually; I talked to a couple of management residents at my school and they look so miserable and tired. But I heard that the job market after the residency is pretty good; but it is a lot of work.

    hey! thanks for replying. I've been searching the forums regarding this topic but haven't really seen anything. How many management residents does your school have? also, did they say anything about what they do on a regular day? and how many hours a week do they work? also, where did you hear that the job market for this type of residency would be good? any type of info would be of great help. thanks

    U of Wisconsin is an established program for years.
    you can also check out the ones at Ohio State, UNC, etc any big hospital's program would be good.

    My school has ~4 to 5 management residents. I have a meeting with one of them on Thursday to get more information about the program and job market.I will post the information.

    Thank you, that would be great! I am not sure if you have these questions (besides the ones already mentioned) already for your meeting with the resident but just in case I wrote them down:
    1) how many hours do you work a week?
    2) what does your typical day consist of?
    3) the masters in health administration that they offer in conjunction with the 2 year residency, is it streamlined to what your rotations are in the residency?
    4) do you get to interact with the director of pharmacy?
    5) how many times a month do the hospital require you to staff the pharmacy?
    6) does the hospital let you pick up shifts if you need to increase your income a little?
    7) what type of projects have you done?

    As of right now, these are the questions I can think of

    Again, thank you very much

    I don't know anyone there, I've just heard that their program is good. Actually University of Wisconsin seems pretty good for pharmacy in general.
