PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Programs

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.

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 resident. 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 that include required rotations, elective rotation(s), and various longitudinal experiences. Click here for Acute Care and Ambulatory Care learning experience descriptions.
