The PGY1 and PGY2 health-system pharmacy administration and leadership residency is a two-year residency, fulfilling the requirements of both a PGY1 residency and a PGY2 health-system pharmacy administration and leadership residency. The PGY1 year will be the same as the stand-alone PGY1 residency at HUP with some minor modifications in elective experiences. The PGY2 program will build upon the PGY1 residency graduates’ competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services to prepare residents to assume high level managerial, supervisory, and leadership responsibilities. Areas of competence emphasized during the program include safe and effective medication-use systems, quality assurance and improvement, the management of human resources, the management of financial resources, use of technology, and advanced leadership. Upon graduation, residents will be prepared for a clinical or operational management/supervisory role within the pharmacy enterprise in a large academic medical center. This new program is in pre-candidate status and will advance to candidate level accreditation status when the first resident enrolls in the 2019 residency year.
