The UIC College of Pharmacy at Rockford is pleased to offer a one-year PGY1 in pharmacy. The program is designed to solidify the skills and knowledge obtained during Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education. By focusing on developing clinical pharmacists prepared to offer medication-related care on multidisciplinary teams, the program provides the advantages of preparation for board certification and postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training. Under the mentorship and guidance of experienced clinical faculty members, the pharmacy resident will transition from a student to independent practitioner during the 12-month program.
The UIC Rockford PGY1 resident is required to complete rotations in anticoagulation, internal medicine, HIV/hepatitis C, family medicine, hypertension, psychiatry and drug information. The resident will also have the opportunity to select from five elective rotations based on their professional interests and career goals. In addition, the resident will be exposed to numerous teaching opportunities and research experience. Upon graduation from the program, the resident will be prepared to provide exceptional pharmaceutical care in a variety of health care settings.
