PGY1 Community-Based Residency


The PGY1 Community-Based Residency program is committed to creating a valuable post-graduate residency training program that will offer an array of experiences designed to prepare individuals for roles in pharmacy with a focus on community pharmacy. The primary emphasis of the residency program will be the development of the resident’s practice skills in various ambulatory care and outpatient settings, as well as further development of teaching skills. Residents will be delegated clinical responsibility under the preceptorship of experienced pharmacists and will be given the opportunity to develop one-on-one teaching skills to specific patient populations. Additionally, residents will be given activities that will further enhance their problem-solving skills and their ability to work with others.

Program Purpose

To build upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop community-based pharmacist practitioners with diverse patient care, leadership, and education skills who are eligible to pursue advanced training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies and professional certifications.
