Lexington Medical Center's post-graduate year one (PGY1) training aims to develop licensed pharmacists into clinical specialists responsible for improving patient care. PGY1 Pharmacy Residents provide direct patient care through activities including pharmacokinetic consults, formulary management (MUE’s), patient and health care provider education, and a longitudinal research project. Residents are able to obtain a teaching certificate through the University of South Carolina. Core rotations include orientation, antimicrobial stewardship, internal medicine, critical care, and transitions of care. We aim to develop the resident’s interest and customize the residency year to meet individual needs.
