The Pharmacy Residency (PGY-1) is a one-year program set in a community hospital, designed to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients. The program is designed to expose the resident to a variety of practice areas in an acute care and ambulatory environment to build and expand the knowledge and skills necessary for direct patient care. The program offers a variety of opportunities for the resident to develop critical thinking, communication, and leadership skills necessary to optimize patient care outcomes.
The residency advisory committee tailors the residency to meet the needs and interests of the resident. Required rotations include sterile prep, internal medicine, critical care, infectious disease, emergency medicine and ambulatory care. Elective rotations offered include nutrition support, oncology and administration/management. Residents present at ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Florida Residency Conference. Residents will also have experiences in drug information, research and student precepting throughout the year. In addition, residents will have the opportunity to gain teaching experience through optional participation in a teaching certificate program, serve as preceptors for APPE students, and provide drug information and in-services to clinical staff throughout the hospital. Residents will have longitudinal involvement in the Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee. They will complete a variety of projects and presentations including a CE program and MUE.
