PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives. Residents who successfully complete PGY1 residency programs will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e. BCPS), and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including post-graduate year two (PGY2) residencies. The UH Specialty Pharmacy PGY1 Residency provides a unique ambulatory care setting, taking care of patients in the community. Residents will be integrated among the various disease specialties including: oncology, rheumatology, gastroenterology, dermatology, neurology, cystic fibrosis, fertility, and hepatology as well as within the main specialty pharmacy working with payors, patient assistance foundations and grants, and drug manufacturing assistance programs. As such, the PGY1 University Hospitals – Specialty Pharmacy residency program prepares residents to be change agents and skilled patient care providers in community pharmacy settings, particularly those that include elements of specialty pharmacy care (i.e. specialty pharmacy, specialty medications, telepharmacy) given the program’s emphasis in specialty pharmacy. Residents will be prepared to deliver effective and accountable patient care, provide medication management and education to patients and the patients’ family members they will serve. Communication, precepting and leadership skills will be enhanced throughout the year. Upon completion of the residency, the resident will be well qualified to practice as a clinical pharmacist in a variety of community or ambulatory care settings or continue training in a PGY2 program.
