    Hi,

    I apologize for my ignorance, but I keep seeing all this stuff about residencies in pharmacy. Can someone explain what the process is? I went to the resodency subforum, but couldn't find much.

    I thought pharmacy was 4 years...then you're free to practice.. which fields would require residencies...and what type things do they look for in an applicant?

    thanks!

      You can practice right after finishing your pharmd in almost all fields. Residencies are not required for any fields that I can think of off the top of my head. They are highly suggested for a number of them like ICU, oncology, ID, etc. Here's a link to a lot of info....
