Pharmacy Residency Program Objectives
The Pharmacy Services Department is committed to the development of pharmacy practitioners by offering the knowledge and skills required to promote, recommend and deliver high quality pharmaceutical care services. The PSPH and PCH PGY1 programs will provide residents with the knowledge, attitude and skills necessary to assure optimal drug therapy outcomes. In addition, the program fosters the life skills and professionalism required to contribute positively to the health care ecosystem.
The program will give participants the chance to provide pharmaceutical care in multiple environments. Residents will be able to work independently in all areas assigned, work effectively with pharmacists in other areas, and supervise or coordinate work for others. Residents will have opportunities to educate colleagues, participate in research, and analyze and present findings. The goal is for each resident to mature in a professional role, be proactive and assertive in interacting with other staff and disciplines, and develop an awareness of local and national pharmacy issues.
Throughout the program, residents will demonstrate competencies in the following core areas:
Advancing practice and improving patient care
Leadership and management
Teaching, education and dissemination of knowledge
The purpose of Pharmacy Residency: "PGY1 residency programs build upon 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 postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies."
