Hennepin Healthcare offers two distinct PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Programs: one focusing on the care of patients in the hospital and ambulatory settings and the other focusing on the care of patients in the ambulatory and community care settings. Please note, this link is for the program focusing in the ambulatory and community care settings. The programs share a set of ASHP goals and objectives and requirements for each program include service, clinical rotations, research, and education.
The PGY-1 pharmacy residency program at Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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.
It is expected that graduates of a Hennepin County Medical Center PGY-1 Residency Program will be competent and confident practitioners of direct and indirect patient care in multiple practice environments. They will be accountable for achieving optimal medication management as collaborative members of the healthcare team. These pharmacists will exercise skill in educating and communicating with other healthcare professionals, patients, and the community on topics relating to patient-centered care. They will demonstrate professional maturity by following a personal philosophy of practice, assessing their own performance, exhibiting a commitment to the profession, and exercising leadership in improving the safety of the medication-use system.
