The PGY1 Residency Program at Saint Alphonsus strives to provide residents with the education and skills necessary to effectively deliver pharmaceutical care in various patient environments. Throughout the program, residents will be provided with opportunities to excel and share their knowledge with other members of the staff, patients, healthcare professionals and the public. This will be through effective education on the monitoring, delivery, safety and appropriate use of medications.
Saint Alphonsus offers a diverse residency experience with both inpatient and outpatient opportunities. Inpatient opportunities include trauma/critical care, cardiology/cardiovascular surgery, medicine, inpatient oncology, surgery, antimicrobial stewardship, neonatology and emergency medicine. Outpatient opportunities include medication therapy management in a variety of disease states including oncology, geriatrics, palliative care and patients at high risk of readmission. Residents will actively participate as a member of multidisciplinary teams to develop treatment plans, as well as be involved in medication use policy development. Residents will gain experience in precepting PharmD students, didactic lecturing, small case discussion and obtain a teaching certificate as part of the program.
Upon completion of the residency program, the residents have the skills to maintain an important role on the healthcare team and are well-equipped to meet the challenges facing today's hospital pharmacists. Through our program, they will develop a high-level of professionalism and compassion for patients consistent with the Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center's ministry to health the body, mind and spirit.
