The McLaren Greater Lansing (MGL) PGY1 pharmacy practice residency is a 12-month program beginning each July that will build on your Doctor of Pharmacy education, offering opportunities to expand your abilities in pharmaceutical care. Two candidates selected annually will work closely with experienced preceptors in a variety of settings, ultimately preparing the graduates as highly marketable pharmacists or to further their training in a PGY2 or other educational setting.
MGL is proud to also offer a number of ACGME medical residencies. The medical center collaborates with two Michigan State University medical schools and a nursing program, along with hosting health care students from other Michigan colleges and universities. This learning environment extends to pharmacy residents the opportunity to take part in multidisciplinary learning experiences and teaching.
