Stefanie Ferreri, Pharm.D., is a clinical associate professor in the Division of Practice Advancement and Clinical Education at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. Her main research interests include advancing clinical practice in the community-pharmacy setting. Through her research, she hopes to change the way community practice is portrayed and delivered to the population of the United States while influencing reimbursement strategies that affect health policy. Her other teaching and research interests include nonprescription therapeutics, medication therapy management and transitions of care.
Ferreri served as director of the community pharmacy residency program from 2004 to 2015. Prior to that she served as a residency preceptor for the program. Since 2001, she has supervised and mentored more than 80 community pharmacy residents in the program. The purpose of the community pharmacy residency program is to prepare pharmacists to guide the profession as innovative clinical practitioners with the skills, confidence and experience necessary to create change and advance patient-care services in community pharmacy practice.
Based on her residency leadership, Ferreri has developed two additional postgraduate learning opportunities. The first is the Community Pharmacy Research Fellowship. This two-year fellowship trains graduates for research careers in academia. The second is the Independent Ownership Residency. This one-year residency trains future independent owners.

An in-depth look into how community pharmacy can participate in the outpatient care team is described. To function as a team, it is crucial to address collaboration among outpatient practices, while making it easier for patients to navigate the outpatient health system.
More than 135 medications in the US describe a pharmacogenomic relationship in drug response or drug safety on their package inserts. Many of these medications are used in the outpatient setting and are filled at community pharmacies, but less than a quarter include pharmacogenetic information in the patient-oriented sections of their drug labels
Objective: To determine the feasibility of implementing a pharmacogenomics service in a community pharmacy.
