The Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center’s PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program is an organized, directed, postgraduate training program in pharmacy practice. The goal of this residency program is to train pharmacists to develop the knowledge and experience necessary to provide pharmaceutical care to patients with a strong emphasis on developing and mastering clinical skills. The residency program also enables pharmacists to gain the skills necessary to become effective pharmacy leaders. The residency is conducted primarily in four or six week blocks of core and elective learning experiences. Additionally, the program has required longitudinal staffing, administrative, and ambulatory components.
Teaching experience is also gained by completing monthly lectures during Pharmacy Grand Rounds for pharmacists, pharmacy residents, pharmacy students, and pharmacy technicians. Residents will also have the opportunity to serve as a co-preceptor for pharmacy students and complete a teaching certificate program with fellow pharmacy residents.
