Jackson-Madison County General Hospital - PGY1 Pharmacy Resident
Jackson-Madison County General Hospital
Location: Jackson, Tennessee
The purpose of PGY1 pharmacy residency programs is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) 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.
Specifically, the Jackson-Madison County General Hospital PGY1 pharmacy residency prepares pharmacists for community-based hospital practice, to serve as experiential adjunct faculty for a college of pharmacy, and/or to pursue second year post-graduate residency training in a focused area of practice.
The mission of our program is to build a foundation for community based clinical practice and leadership by developing skill sets in pharmacotherapy evaluations and management, direct patient care, literature evaluation, leadership and practice management, and project and presentation development.
