In this article the author offers statistics corroborating the shortage of residency-trained pharmacists while emphasizing on closing this gap to give a future direction to pharmacy. He outlines ways to achieve the same including increasing the number of residents in existing programs, and starting nontraditional residency training programs. The author notes that while groups such as ASHP can only provide tools and resources, those working in health systems can actually bring about the change.
