This is an organized postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency program that is directed to focus on the development of knowledge, attitude, and skills needed to become a competent clinical practitioner. The training and education of residents will complement existing clinical pharmaceutical care. The residents will be directly involved in providing patient oriented pharmaceutical services as well as participate in other pharmacy operations including management and assigned projects.
The purpose of the program is to develop well-rounded, independent, competent clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions. Residents will be provided the opportunity to accelerate their growth beyond entry-level professional competence in patient-centered care, pharmacy operational services, and to further the development of leadership skills that can be applied to any practice setting. Residents will also participate in ongoing service activities to expand clinical problem solving skills and their ability to work with others. Further, the goal is to prepare residents to precept students, prepare for BPS certification, pursue a PGY2 residency, and, in the future, function as a residency preceptor.
