The Avon Hospital Pharmacy Residency (PGY-1) is a one-year postgraduate training program based in a state-of-the-art community hospital practice setting.
The residency will build upon the knowledge and skills gained from a Doctor of Pharmacy education, focusing on the development of a pharmacist practitioner capable of managing medication-related care for patients with a variety of acute and chronic disease states. Core experiences include central and decentralized pharmacy practice, internal medicine, critical care, infectious diseases, and emergency medicine, as well as every other weekend staffing and clinical responsibilities.
The resident will develop leadership skills through a practice management experience and hospital committee involvement. The resident will have the opportunity to complete elective experiences based on their needs and interests. The resident will be involved in educational activities, including presentations to pharmacy staff, provider and nursing in-services, co-precepting pharmacy students, and completion of a teaching certificate through Northeast Ohio Medical University. Research experience will be gained through completion of a major research project, and the resident will attend and present research at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and regional residency conferences.
