The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program is a 12-month program designed to build on Doctor of Pharmacy education to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and for PGY-2 pharmacy residency training.
Our program is committed to providing residents with the skills and knowledge required to become capable, well-rounded pharmacists by providing experience in:
Provision of pharmaceutical care on teaching and non-teaching services, including internal medicine, critical care, infectious diseases, and emergency medicine.
Development of precepting and teaching skills by co-precepting students on rotations, providing education to pharmacy staff and other members of the care team, and participating in a teaching certificate program.
Practice management activities to increase knowledge of the role of pharmacy in the broader provision of hospital care.
Upon successful completion of the program, residents will have achieved the required educational outcomes, goals, and objectives in the required competency areas set forth by the American Society for Health-System Pharmacists:
