Our ASHP-Accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is a structured and advanced education and training experience that provides the foundational skills required to become competent and confident clinical practitioners, and future leaders in pharmacy practice. Our residents develop knowledge and skills in direct patient care, with experiences in both acute and ambulatory care settings, providing them with the opportunity to be successful in multiple practice environments, or to build upon the foundation with enrollment into advanced training programs. Our clinical pharmacy specialists hold a scope of practice with prescribing authority and manage pharmacist-led clinics, such as primary care (diabetes, hypertension, lipids, COPD, heart failure, tobacco cessation, anemia), mental health, and anticoagulation. Residents also receive training and experience in teaching through our affiliation with Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville School of Pharmacy (SIUE-SOP), and are provided the opportunity to obtain a teaching certificate, as well as adjunct faculty status, at SIUE-SOP.
