Program Purpose: Unity Health's PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training. Our program is structured to develop a clinical pharmacist equipped to provide high quality patient care in the small to mid-sized community hospital setting.
The Program is designed to produce residents who are competent in the following areas:
Advancing practice and improving patient care
Leadership and management
Teaching, education and dissemination of knowledge
Our program works with each resident to design a customized development plan based on their knowledge, skills and areas of interest. Upon successful completion of the program, the individual resident will be well-prepared to pursue their unique career goals. Residents must complete 11 monthly rotations, including 5 required and 6 elective rotations, as well as 4 required longitudinal rotations.
