The ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency offered at Presbyterian Hospital in downtown Albuquerque is a flexible program designed to provide residents with unique experiences in both clinical and administrative practice. The overall goal of the PGY1 program is to prepare residents for clinical practice by developing their technical, critical thinking and communication skills through interdisciplinary rounds and patient profile review, in-service education, precepting pharmacy students, and participation on pharmacy and hospital committees. At the end of the program, residents are well-prepared for a position in hospital pharmacy, board certification, or pursuit of a PGY2 residency program.
Post-Graduate Year Two (PGY-2) Ambulatory Care Residency
New Mexico is at the forefront of advanced practice licensure in pharmacy. New Mexico pharmacists may gain prescriptive authority as pharmacist clinicians (PhCs) and function as advanced practice clinicians at Presbyterian. Ambulatory care residents will complete requirements for PhC, including physical assessment coursework, documentation of patient contact hours, and development of a practice protocol. One PGY2 ambulatory care residency position will be filled each year. Residents who successfully complete this program will possess competencies that qualify them for practice in chronic disease state management in ambulatory settings and/or faculty positions and will be well-positioned for attainment of board certification in ambulatory care pharmacy.

Presbyterian Healthcare Services exists to improve the health of the patients, members and communities we serve. We are a locally owned and operated not-for-profit healthcare system known nationally for our extensive experience in integrating healthcare financing and delivery.
We’ve grown from a small tuberculosis sanatorium founded in 1908, to a system of nine hospitals, a multi-specialty medical group with more than 900 providers and a statewide health plan. We serve one in three New Mexicans with healthcare or coverage.
Our regional hospitals provide both acute and preventive care: from surgical, ambulatory and emergency services to health fairs, fun runs, and prevention and screening programs. We seek to provide the most affordable and effective care possible. To help achieve this goal, we continue to look toward the future, making prudent investments in modern equipment and technology – such as MyChart and Video Visits – that make patient access and care management easier, more convenient and affordable.
We are governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees comprised of community leaders. These individuals have included members of the Navajo Nation, theologians, bu...siness leaders, educators, medical administrators and others. They donate their time and energy to ensure that we maintain superior caregiving, deliver high-quality healthcare and work tirelessly to create a healthy New Mexico, now and for years to come.
