The primary purpose of the SCCP's Pre-Residency Track is to enhance the preparation and competitiveness of Doctor of Pharmacy students applying for a PGY-1 residency. This track will offer a roadmap for students to be successful in critical areas including scholarship experience, organizational involvement, experiential education, and additional basic tools for navigating the application and interview process. A complete overview of the Pre-Residency Track can be found HERE.


Any questions about the track should be directed to:

Brandon Bookstaver
Dr. Brandon Bookstaver  at the USC Campus

Sandra Ganer
Dr. Sandra Garner  at the MUSC Campus

Dr. Kimberly Clark  at the Greenville Campus.


Application into the track is for rising P2 and P3 students. A call for interested students will occur in the spring/summer annually. Applications are preferred by August 15th but can be submitted at any time of year. There is no cap on the number of applicants accepted into the track. You are not obligated to stay in the track, nor are you obligated to complete all of the requirements. The track serves as a guide, a roadmap, to help you, the student! Completion of all track requirements as verified by the track coordinators will result in official certification at graduation ceremonies and can be officially labeled on your curriculum vitae.
