The St. Joseph's/Candler PGY1 residency program is designed to train selected, highly motivated, and qualified pharmacists in general pharmacy practice. This residency focuses on development of the knowledge, attitude, and skills needed to provide quality, compassionate and cost-effective pharmaceutical care. Our program is a flexible, broad-based, practice-oriented experience.
Each resident’s training plan is individualized to meet the resident’s needs and goals as well as the goals of the program. As a community-based health delivery network, we offer many unique educational and experiential opportunities and advantages.
In addition to core and elective learning experiences (rotations), the pharmacy resident participates in other opportunities and projects such as preceptorship of PharmD students, medication use evaluation, safety process education and implementation, and P&T Committee functions. Each resident is expected to develop, administer and submit for publication an original research project. Project details are presented as a poster at the spring Georgia Society of Health Systems Pharmacists (GSHP) meeting and orally presented at the Southeastern Residency Conference (SERC). Residents also enroll in a Graduate Certificate program at the University of Georgia which prepares the resident, through experiential and didactic teaching, to mentor PharmD students.
