Pharmacy practice in Singapore and training experiences in the United States
Caroline Tee, Ralph H. Raasch, and Stephen F. Eckel
Hospital pharmacy practice continues to evolve around the world. Many countries have expanded the role of the pharmacist, moving them from dispensing of medications to taking an active role in the health of patients. Technology is playing a part in this transformation. The optimal role for hospital pharmacy practice is to make pharmacists responsible and accountable for the medication use system. This article describes the education and current practice of pharmacists in Singapore and their support and utilization of residency training in the United States. In addition, it also discusses the residency program at one hospital in the United States and their approach to mentoring and training future pharmacists to practice in the newly developing role taking place in Singapore.
