Required Rotations Residents also participate in longitudinal experiences and multidisciplinary committee work throughout the year, which provides project management experience at both the department and institution level. Through our partnership with Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) University, our residents gain teaching experience in the classroom and at the bedside.
