PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Programs

PGY1 Pharmacy Residency programs build on pharmacy 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.

LRH offers two PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Programs with an emphasis in Acute Care or Ambulatory Care settings. Both programs deliver organized postgraduate training designed to accommodate the needs of individual residents. Over the course of twelve months, the resident will develop expert skills and competency in providing pharmaceutical care to a variety of patient populations. LRH PGY1 residency programs strive to provide flexibility in order to tailor the experience to the resident’s interests through a variety of rotational experiences. Residents will obtain professional confidence and leadership skills by being actively involved in the multidisciplinary care of patients.

The PGY1 programs are comprised of a vast range of learning experiences including ten required rotations, two elective rotations, and various longitudinal experiences. Click here for Acute Care and Ambulatory Care learning experience descriptions.
