Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center’s PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited 12-month postgraduate training program designed to help pharmacists gain confidence and competence in the health system setting. The goals, objectives and evaluation processes are consistent with those established by ASHP for PGY1 residency programs. The residency is based out of Memorial Regional Medical Center; however, there are rotation opportunities at each of the four Bon Secours sites in the Richmond metro area.
Residents receive training and develop competence in acute and ambulatory patient care, medication safety, drug-use policy development and practice management. Residents serve as an integral part of our ongoing staff development program and will present journal clubs and continuing education programs to our pharmacists. Residents will also precept Doctor of Pharmacy candidates from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Pharmacy, are given the opportunity to present didactic lectures at the university, and are able to obtain a Teaching and Learning Certificate. Each resident will complete a medication-use evaluation project with results to be completed at ASHP Midyear Meeting and a major project with results to be presented at an annual residency conference.
Applicants must be Doctor of Pharmacy graduates from an ACPE-accredited school of pharmacy and be eligible for licensure in Virginia. All applications are to be submitted via PhORCAS by January 2, 2019. Academic transcripts, letter of intent, three references, and an on-site interview are required.
