  • Program Overview
    • The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program builds on PharmD education and outcomes to contribute to the development of a clinical pharmacist 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.

      In keeping with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) standard, the PGY1 residency provides the opportunity for the resident to develop professionally beyond entry-level professional competence in patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services, further develop leadership, acquire substantial knowledge required for problem-solving, and strengthen professional values and attitude to advance the growth of the resident's clinical and critical thinking skills.

      The 12 month Pharmacy Residency program affords the resident several professional growth opportunities with rotations in both the ambulatory care and inpatient settings. Areas of rotation include Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Warrior Transition Battalion Clinic, Critical Care, Leadership/Management, Hematology/Oncology, Pain Management, Anticoagulation, Geriatrics, Psychiatry, Anticoagulation, Research, Antimicrobial Stewardship, and Medication Safety. Teaching opportunities include didactic lectures, staff in-services, and group patient care classes. The culmination of the residency is the development and presentation of a year-long project at the local and/or regional level.
