The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at Mayo Clinic in Florida is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Graduates of this residency have consistently found immediate employment in academia, hospital pharmacy practice and ambulatory care clinics. Several graduates have moved on to complete a PGY2 specialty residency. Approximately one-fourth of the program's graduates have accepted positions at the Jacksonville campus of Mayo Clinic.
The residency program is continuously evaluated for improvement opportunities to ensure graduates make a seamless transition into clinical practice. Four candidates a year are selected on a competitive basis.
PGY1 pharmacy residents devote much of their time to comprehensive training as a member of the interdisciplinary team. Learning experiences focus on acute and ambulatory patient care in addition to administration and practice leadership.
As a member of the Mayo Clinic health care team working with pharmacist practitioners in the acute care setting, residents design, recommend, monitor and evaluate patient-specific therapeutic regimens that incorporate principles of evidence-based medicine. Additional experiences in ambulatory care emphasize patient education and medication therapy management.
The administration and practice leadership experience focuses on understanding the departmental philosophy and mission, regulatory requirements, and developing skills to identify and solve practice problems using policy development. All of these experiences provide a well-rounded curriculum that fosters comprehensive development of a general pharmacist clinician.
