We are helping to prepare tomorrow’s healthcare leaders through the Senior Health Services Medicare Pharmacy Residency Program.
Roughly 10,000 Americans turn 65 every day, a trend that will continue in the coming years. Many of these older Americans sign up for Medicare’s Part D prescription drug benefit, and the number of people enrolled in Part D has grown steadily since the program started in 2006.
Working as a pharmacist for a Medicare health plan presents unique challenges. Understanding CMS guidance, audits, and quality rating systems, as well as the rules for coverage determinations, formulary and appeals can be overwhelming. The Senior Health Services Medicare Pharmacy Residency provides in-depth training in all aspects of a Medicare pharmacy managed care plan by immersing the resident in the Medicare pharmacy department of one of the largest Medicare plans in the United States.
Our residency program, though non-accredited, follows residency guidelines established by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists to deliver a structured learning experience for the resident.
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, or disability status.
If you are a U.S. applicant with a disability who is unable to use our online tools to search and apply for jobs, please call us at 517-708-5400.
The residency program at Senior Health Services will not only help you achieve your professional goals, it will give you the opportunity to see and experience everything that the Great Lakes state has to offer. Living and working in southeastern Michigan, you’ll be close to the best of Detroit-area arts, music, culture and sports.
Local museums such as the Motown Museum, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History, the Detroit Institute of Arts and The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation contribute greatly to the cultural life of Metro Detroit. The area is also becoming a haven for food lovers, with dozens of new restaurants opening in the Detroit area each year.
Of course, metro Detroit is known for its outdoor fun and experiences as well. Michigan has the longest freshwater coastline in the United States, an energetic boating community, countless inland lakes and highly rated public golf courses. Plus, there are bike trails, walking paths and parks across the region and a host of community and cultural festivals held throughout the year.
For anyone considering a pharmacy residency, there’s never been a better time to study and live in Metro Detroit.
