Objectives. To establish, implement, and evaluate a drug use management and policy residency program within the context of a service-learning framework. Design. Residents completed a 4-month term in which they were paired with a preceptor (health care manager or policy analyst) to complete a project designed to assist their work and to provide the resident with an understanding of policy formulation related to pharmaceuticals. Assessment. A formative evaluation of the first 2 years of the residency was conducted using semi-structured interviews with key stakeholders and an examination of program documents. Recurring themes were identified and a set of “lessons learned” was generated. Conclusion. The Drug Use Management and Policy Residency Program adhered to service learning tenets and was a practical educational experience for residents.
