The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at Parkland Health & Hospital System is a 12-month ASHP-accredited training program centered on the development of the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to pursue rational drug therapy. Residents work in a multi-disciplinary environment with numerous healthcare professionals to solve complex medication-related issues using critical thinking and evaluative skills. Residents are mentored by one or more invested preceptors to ensure personal and professional goals of residency are being met.
PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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.
