The University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics offers the following ASHP-Accredited residency programs:
PGY1 Pharmacy Residency - acute care setting and ambulatory care setting
PGY1/PGY2 Health System Pharmacy Residency
PGY2 Ambulatory Care
PGY2 Emergency Medicine
PGY1 Program Purpose: PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) 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.
PGY2 Program Purpose: PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in the specialized area (when board certification for the practice area exists).
Each program has specific training requirements in both acute and ambulatory areas, as well as clinical and operational areas. All residents are required to complete a year long research program, staffing commitment, and opportunity for a teaching preparation program.
