Drs. Keith Johnson; Priyam Mithawala; Samuel John; Gwinnett Medical Center’s Reva Grant, clinical supervisor and residency site coordinator; Kacie Waters; and Brandon Cunningham celebrate the PCOM School of Pharmacy’s residency accreditation.
Under the direction of PGY-1 Residency Program Director Samuel John, PharmD, BCPS, the PCOM School of Pharmacy Residency Program was recently granted full accreditation through 2023. According to Dr. John, 99 new programs underwent American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) site surveys last year and only 44 were granted the maximum number of years of accreditation. “This is a huge accomplishment for us,” he said.
A dinner party was held last week to celebrate the ASHP accreditation and this year’s pharmacy residents. Gregory Smallwood, PharmD, FCCP, presented Keith Johnson, PharmD, and Brandon Cunningham, PharmD, with their teaching certificates, while Dr. John presented the past two classes of residents including Kacie Waters, PharmD, Priyam Mithawala, PharmD, Dr. Johnson and Dr. Cunningham with their residency certificates of completion indicating PCOM’s new accredited status by ASHP.
