Post Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) Program's Purpose: The PGY1 pharmacy residency program develop pharmacists who are valued members of the healthcare team, achieving optimal drug therapy outcomes through the application of their knowledge. The program also contributes to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligibility for board certification, and postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

The pharmacy residency program offers a variety of core rotations (internal medicine, critical care, oncology, drug information, central pharmacy practice, management, emergency medicine and geriatrics), longitudinal experiences (research and central operations) and elective rotations. The program provides flexibility for the residents to focus on individual interests and career goals. Each rotation is typically four to six weeks long.

Residents gain the skills to become confident, caring and well-rounded direct patient care providers. Residents also participate in Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee activities, Medication Safety Committee activities and medication use evaluations and provide education to pharmacists, nurses, physicians and patients. A major research project suitable for publication is also required.
