This postgraduate year one (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists who will be 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.
The 12-month PGY1 curriculum offers training opportunities in acute care, transitions of care, drug information, drug use policy development, clinical services, and practice leadership. Residents will gain the necessary experience and develop critical thinking skills needed to move forward in the dynamic world of pharmacy practice.
In keeping with the American Society of Healthy-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Accreditation Standard, the following four competencies, along with their associated goals and objectives, will be taught and evaluated during the program: direct patient care, advancing pharmacy practice through improving patient care, leadership and management, and teaching, education, and dissemination of knowledge. This PGY1 pharmacy residency program has an accreditation pre-candidate status with ASHP.
