The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is an ASHP-accredited program that is tailored to appeal to an individual desiring a well-rounded pharmacy experience. The residents will have the opportunity to provide pharmaceutical care in a variety of patient care settings including internal medicine, medical and surgical ICU, cardiology, pediatrics, infectious disease, emergency medicine, oncology/BMT, solid organ transplant and medication management. Following PGY1 residency training, many of the graduates of the program have gone on to faculty positions or clinical pharmacist roles, while others have chosen to pursue PGY2 specialty residency training.
Throughout the residency year, the residents will provide 24-hour clinical services through an in-house on-call program and will participate as a member of the pharmacy led inpatient anticoagulation service and pharmacokinetic consult service. Additionally, the residents participate in code blue, inpatient code stroke and level 1 and 2 trauma response. Residents will also have the opportunity to develop communication and teaching skills through providing formal didactic lectures, participating in a teaching certificate program and serving as a preceptor for pharmacy students.
Candidates, including international applicants, must be PharmD graduates of an accredited college of pharmacy and be eligible for Massachusetts licensure.
