PGY1 Residency Philosophy
The philosophy of the Pharmacy Residency at St. Vincent Indianapolis Is to provide the residents with the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills in caring for diverse patient populations. This opportunity will be provided through active participation in patient-centered rounds, evidence-based disease management, patient/family and medical staff education, medication safety, outcomes-based research, and educational and scholarly activities. Experiences will provide the residents the ability to function independently in a variety of settings or prepare them to pursue additional post-graduate training.
