The postgraduate year 1 (PGY1) residency programs at the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) offer residencies at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Detroit Receiving Hospital, Harper-Hutzel Hospital, and Sinai-Grace Hospital. Each PGY1 site is committed to providing the highest quality postgraduate training in contemporary hospital pharmacy practice. The program is designed to meet each resident’s individual needs and assist them in attaining their personal and professional goals. Each hospital offers unique opportunities for pharmacists who desire advanced training in pharmacy practice in a variety of settings. One of the benefits of the PGY1 pharmacy residency programs at the DMC is the ability of the resident to participate in learning experiences at all hospitals in the system.
Our PGY1 residency programs emphasize all aspects of clinical and pharmacological management in adult and pediatric patients. Clinical Pharmacist Specialists practice and serve as preceptors in all settings. As part of the health care team, pharmacists actively participate in patient rounds, analyze drug therapies, and provide up-to-date pharmacotherapeutic data. They are the medication experts for patients, physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals.
The purpose of these ASHP accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Programs is to build 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. In addition, graduates of the program are eligible for board certification and PGY2 pharmacy residency training. The DMC advances the professional practice level and knowledge base of the resident through a progression of experiences tailored to their individual interests.
The DMC PGY1 sites take pride in attracting highly motivated Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) graduates from accredited schools of pharmacy in the United States. Applicants must be eligible for licensure in Michigan.
