The purpose of the PGY1 pharmacy residency program at The Christ Hospital is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy 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 PGY2 residency training.
Each resident will be an integral part of the medication use process. The residency will serve to help the resident develop a secure understanding of the clinical, distributive, and administrative aspects of the practice of pharmacy. Through a variety of advanced practice experiences, each resident will gain confidence to effectively function as a member of a multi-disciplinary team. The program will focus on developing and refining the resident's writing, presentation, teaching, research, and leadership skills.\
