PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for identifying and solving medication-related problems and improving health outcomes for patients with a wide range of conditions. By completion of the PGY1 residency program, the resident should be a competent and compassionate provider of chronic condition management to individual patients in the ambulatory setting, understand and contribute to innovative pharmacy practice models, apply evidence to make informed clinical decisions, and be a leader and educator to peers and learners.


The PGY1 resident takes on the role of a clinical pharmacist to provide a variety of patient care experiences and the opportunity to gain expertise in chronic disease state management under the guidance of skilled preceptors. The resident will have the opportunity to serve a diverse patient population and should expect to gain experience in cardiology, dermatology, drug information/statistics, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, hematology/oncology, infectious disease, men’s and women’s health, nephrology, neurology, pediatrics, psychiatry, pulmonology, and rheumatology. In addition to growing clinical skills, the resident will gain experience in teaching, preceptorship, medication use, population health, program and service development, data analysis, and research. The goal is for the PGY1 resident to become a compassionate healthcare team member who is a competent drug therapy expert in the ambulatory setting.
