Background and purpose The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a course change from a faculty-led professional pharmacy elective to a primarily pharmacy resident-led course on student satisfaction and learning. Educational activity and setting In 2014, pharmacy residents were transitioned into primary teaching roles in a drug-induced diseases elective to increase student exposure to residents and different teaching styles. Student learning roles did not change. Course evaluations and grades were compared between the resident-led year and prior year. Findings There was no significant difference between overall course grades during the resident-led year (94.2 ± 36.6 in 2014 vs. 94.1 ± 2.7 in 2013; p=0.975). Course evaluations were similar to the previous year and students provided favorable feedback. Discussion and summary This pharmacy resident-led elective allowed for resident integration in to an interactive professional elective. Student satisfaction with the course remained similar to the previous year and overall course grades did not differ.
