Welcome to the Pharmacy Residency Program

The mission of the Pharmacy Residency Program is to prepare pharmacists to become competent, highly functional, independent clinical practitioners focused on medication therapy management in an acute care setting. Our program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).

Purpose Statement

Our PGY-1 pharmacy program builds 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 (PGY-2) pharmacy residency training.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will have the knowledge, skills and attitude needed to pursue general clinical pharmacy positions and will be qualified to deliver direct patient care in an acute care hospital. Graduates will be equipped to function as pharmacy educators and will be ready for success as a PGY-2 resident. 

Graduates of this program will have completed learning experiences in the following areas: adult inpatient internal medicine, antimicrobial stewardship, critical care, infectious diseases, pharmacy administration and emergency medicine. Residents in the program will have the opportunity to pursue a teaching certificate and choose elective learning experiences in academia, neonatology, hematology/oncology and pediatrics/pediatric intensive care.
