The purpose of our PGY1 pharmacy residency program is to build upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes by contributing to the development of pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, abilities, skills, and competencies as defined in each learning experience. Residents who successfully complete our PGY1 residency program will be skilled in providing diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education and be prepared to seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e., BCPS) and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.
Our PGY1 residents will be trained by experienced and competent providers of evidence-based disease state management and patient-centered pharmaceutical care in a variety of healthcare settings.
Our primary goal is to develop well-rounded, competent pharmacy practitioners prepared to optimize drug therapy in patients with a wide range of medical conditions.
