The article focuses on the establishment of a hospital-based pharmacy practice residency (PPR) program in Saudi Arabia. It notes that the establishment of a PPR program is an excellent approach to address major challenges that pharmacists face in providing quality pharmaceutical care to patients in Saudi Arabia, such as the retention of the baccalaureate degree curriculum and insufficient training programs. It asserts that a two-year PPR program in the country will optimize patient care.
