Colorado Pharmacy Residency Teaching Certificate (CPRTC) Program


Program Goal: 

To provide an opportunity to enhance teaching skills through practical training and actual hands on teaching experience both in the university setting as well as the clinical practice setting.  A focus will be placed on both classroom and clinical practice teaching/precepting.  The teaching certificate program should not be considered the equivalent of more in depth training that can be attained with PGY2 residency or fellowship training.  Rather, graduates of the program should feel comfortable with designing and implementing educational programs within the clinical practice environment, as well as gain adequate exposure to consider if a career in academia is desired.  The Teaching Certificate is awarded to participants that successfully complete the program requirements.

Program Outcomes:

  1. The program participant will be able to demonstrate their expanded knowledge in a variety of instructional settings.
  2. The program participant will possess an extensive teaching skill set to utilize in both the classroom and clinical setting
  3. The program participant will be able to create a teaching portfolio following completion of required experiences.

Target Audience: 

The CPRTC Program is intended for PGY1, PGY2 pharmacy residents, fellows, and preceptors with an interest in classroom teaching, occasional lecturing and/or precepting of students.  Participants do not have to be committed to a career path targeting full time academia.  New and seasoned practitioners/preceptors are also welcome to participate and must follow the same program requirements to earn a teaching certificate.

  • Academic year 2010-2011:     25 residents completed program
  • Academic year 2011-2012:     38 residents/fellows completed program
