Pharmacy Residency

Purpose

The purpose of the residency is to provide postgraduate educational and training experiences for pharmacists so they can obtain the fundamentals of exemplary contemporary pharmacy practice in an integrated health system. The program will also allow the residents to gain experience in providing direct patient care to multiple patient populations. Through various clinical, practice management and pharmaceutical practice training segments, the residency instills a philosophy of practice that embraces the concept that pharmacists must be accountable for optimum drug therapy outcomes and act as leaders in advancing care of patients. Pharmacists will develop leadership skills, communication skills (both written and verbal) and professionalism in preparation for their own clinical practice as a clinical pharmacist in a hospital setting. The resident will also gain valuable skills as an educator while precepting pharmacy students from various colleges of pharmacies. Upon graduating from the PGY-1 program, the resident will be qualified to become board certified in pharmacotherapy.
