Educational Program Overview

The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program curriculum will provide experience in a variety of clinical settings under the guidance of select clinical and non-clinical pharmacy staff members. The residents will rotate through all campuses until we are merged into the new Wynn Hospital downtown location, anticipated in the fall of 2023.

The training experiences will be built upon 4, 6, and 8-week rotation blocks within the 12-month training program. Orientation will be followed by core required rotations and select elective rotations, based on availability of preceptors. The residents will also participate in year-long longitudinal experiences as part of their requirements for completion of the program.

The goal of the program is to prepare the resident to assume independent clinical practice by the end of their residency learning experiences. It will also prepare the resident to pursue a PGY- 2 program, fellowship, or academic position, depending on their career aspirations and goals.

Supplementing the residents’ clinical learning experiences will be journal club presentations, medication utilization evaluations, formulary drug reviews and teaching experiences.

Residents will also have the opportunity to contribute to the education of PharmD students through co-precepting responsibilities, as well as teaching opportunities in the St. Elizabeth College of Nursing.
Resident’s weekend responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, clinical pharmacokinetics, antimicrobial stewardship and pharmacy operational services.
