The Department of Pharmacy at Spartanburg Medical Center has a rich history of post-graduate training dating back to 1978. The program spanned eight years and graduated 15 residents, some of whom are still employed with the department today.
The re-emergence of a postgraduate year one (PGY1) residency in 2012 represented a new era of pharmacy practice at Spartanburg Medical Center. Utilizing the program’s historical roots as a foundation, this new program aims to provide a learning experience conducive to the enhancement of a pharmacist’s ability to excel in a health system setting.
