This ASHP accredited PGY1 pharmacy residency program is designed to develop skilled, well-rounded, confident members of the patient care team. Experience and knowledge are developed through learning experiences with highly skilled mentors dedicated to patient care and education. Residents will have the opportunity to participate in clinical, managerial, and operational pharmacy services.
Flexibility allows residents to tailor their learning experiences to meet their individual interests and career goals. Core learning experiences include internal medicine, infectious diseases, critical care, emergency medicine, pain management, pediatrics, service commitment (staffing), and practice management. A variety of elective learning experiences are available, ie. Oncology, PICU, NICU, informatics, medication safety, management, transitions of care, and Rutgers Teaching Certificate Program. Each resident will complete a major project, participate in committees, attend conferences, provide educational lectures for clinicians, and co-precept pharmacy students.
In addition to learning experiences, residents will complete a major project aimed to improve pharmaceutical care within the institution as well as participate in medication use evaluations and multidisciplinary committees. Teaching experience is gained as residents serve as co-preceptors for pharmacy students, and provide continuing education for pharmacists and other health care team members. Residents interested in strengthening their skills in presenting lectures and precepting students may participate in a teaching certificate program at Rutgers University Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy. Upon completion of this residency program, residents will be prepared for clinical positions in an acute care setting or for pursuing further specialized training in a PGY2 residency program.
