As part of the BayCare Health System in the Tampa Bay area, South Florida Baptist Hospital is a 148 bed community hospital located in Plant City, Florida. The PGY1 residency program is designed to build on Doctor of Pharmacy education in order to develop residents into clinical pharmacists providing safe and effective patient care to a diverse range of patients. Residents will ultimately be prepared to pursue board certification and will be eligible for future PGY2 residency training.
The 12-month program is highly customizable to resident interests, and includes opportunities for precepting pharmacy students through obtaining teaching certifications, development of written and oral presentation skills, research, and the growth of leadership skills. While the majority of rotation experiences will take place at South Florida Baptist Hospital (SFBH), the resident will have the opportunity to complete elective rotations at various sites across BayCare Health System.
