Postgraduate Year 1 (PGY1)/Postgraduate Year 2 (PGY2) Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership/MBA Residency Program
Providence Residency programs are built on a tradition of excellence in pharmacy services. Providence pharmacy departments in Oregon are leaders in the implementation of progressive pharmacy services. We offer diverse training opportunities in award-winning practice settings recognized for high-quality patient care. The Providence Health & Services Oregon Region PGY1 Residency Program received the Pharmacy Residency Excellence Award from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) in 2015. The ASHP Foundation presents one award annually, highlighting the achievements of select residency programs and their preceptors, staff and practice sites, which have demonstrated excellence and leadership in the training of pharmacy residents.
The PGY1 program is an integrated health system residency offering learning experiences throughout Providence Health & Services in Portland. Beyond direct patient care, residents will have exposure to a variety of pharmacy practice areas, including informatics, medication safety, managed care and various specialty areas. Our PGY1 program has been accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists since 1994.
The PGY2 component of the residency will offer residents unique experiences to be intimately involved on the Regional Pharmacy Leadership Team. The resident will be exposed to leaders in all levels of health-system pharmacy administration. Within a large integrated health-system, being the only health-system pharmacy administration resident during the second year will allow flexibility based on each resident’s career interest.
In addition to the diverse learning experiences offered, residents participate in the Portland-area CityWide Residency Program, allowing residents to meet and learn from more than 65 pharmacy residents from health systems throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. The program’s open, collaborative environment allows residents to share knowledge across organizations. Educational sessions enhance what is learned within individual residency programs. Topics include personal and professional leadership, teaching skills, preceptor development, change management, project justification and legislative advocacy.
Our residents also have the opportunity to earn a teaching certificate through the Oregon Pharmacist Teaching Certificate Program, an arrangement between local residency programs, Oregon State University College of Pharmacy and Pacific University School of Pharmacy.
