Program Overview

The PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacist (ASHP) educational competency areas, goals, and objectives. Residents who successfully complete PGY1 residency programs will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education, and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e. BCPS), and pursue postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.

In keeping with the ASHP standard, the WAMC 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 Womack Pharmacy Residency program affords the resident several professional growth opportunities with rotations in both the ambulatory care and inpatient settings. Areas of core required rotations include Ambulatory Care, General Medicine Units, Critical Care, and Leadership/Management.  Required longitudinal rotations include Teaching, Leadership/Management, Residency Project, and Service Obligation. Teaching opportunities include obtaining a teaching certificate from a local university (previous opportunities include the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Campbell University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences), didactic lectures, staff in-services, and group patient care classes. There may be additional opportunity for pharmacy student co-precepting as schedules permit. The culmination of the residency is the development and presentation of a year-long project at the local and/or regional level. On a case-by-case basis, the CLOSED Residency Advisory Committee may permit a pharmacy resident to perform inpatient rounding services alongside the longitudinal experience preceptor during the service obligation upon successful completion of Internal Medicine I (Core) Rotation. The resident must have demonstrated at least 75% of achievements on R1.1 and R 1.2 objectives during Internal Medicine I (CORE) Rotation. The resident will not be permitted to advance to weekend inpatient rounding services as part of the longitudinal service obligation requirement if there are any instances of needs improvement for any R1.1 or R1.2 objective during the Internal Medicine I (Core) Rotation. Elective rotations are offered in various specialties throughout the military treatment facility based on preceptor availability. Other elective learning experiences may be developed based on resident interest and preceptor availability.
