Emory University Hospital Midtown PGY1 Specialty Focused Pharmacy Residency
The PGY1 Specialty Pharmacy Residency at Emory University Healthcare is a 12-month, multi-site program designed to provide traditional PGY1 hospital training in addition to specialty pharmacy training. Specialty pharmacy encompasses managing the coordination of care of patients with complex disease states such as oncology, transplant, and autoimmune diseases. The primary emphasis of this unique residency is to train the pharmacist to function as an integral member of the multidisciplinary patient care team while using evidence-based medicine to optimize medication use in patients with specialty disease states to aid in coordination of care. In addition, emphasis will also be placed on navigating and managing the specialty medication approval process and specialty pharmacy operations. Upon completion of this residency, the resident will be eligible for board certification and postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training or a position as a clinical pharmacist.
