PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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.
The BHF PGY1 residency program is designed to enable the resident to provide progressive pharmacy services in a variety of clinical settings for an acute care regional hospital. The program emphasizes the resident’s development of advanced knowledge and application of pharmacotherapeutics as part of a multi-disciplinary patient care team. The resident is exposed to many different clinical and professional elements important to current practices of clinical pharmacy. Responsibilities include participation in the Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee and the Antimicrobial Stewardship committee meetings and initiatives, precepting students, presenting classroom lectures and conducting valuable research to expand clinical pharmacy services. Resident’s experiences are customized and adapted throughout the year to allow them to meet their individual goals. Residency preceptors challenge the resident to excel in a supportive community environment and prepare them to be future leaders in the pharmacy profession.
