The PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes 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 eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
The PGY1 residency program is designed to train selected, highly motivated, and highly qualified pharmacists in advanced pharmacy practice. This residency focuses on development of the knowledge, attitude, and skills needed to provide quality, compassionate and cost-effective pharmaceutical care. The goal of the program is to assist the resident in developing specific skills and competencies that are needed to assume leadership roles in the profession.
The residency year is structured with several required rotations along with time for elective rotations. All residents will participate longitudinally in the provision of clinical and distributive services offered in the Department of Pharmacy. Residents develop, present, and prepare a manuscript for a major research project. They also provide formal educational lectures to pharmacy staff, students, and the community. Residents serve as preceptors for PharmD. students who are completing clinical clerkship training on site.
