About the Program
PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists 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.
This multi-site program offers residents exposure to a variety of practice environments and experiences. The resident will gain experience across the continuum of care including acute, transitional and ambulatory care settings in a not-for-profit health system. The program also offers a teaching certificate through affiliated Schools of Pharmacy.
