The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at Maine Medical Center is designed to develop skills for the resident to become competent in the provision of pharmaceutical care, education of patients and health care professionals, and in dissemination of accurate drug information. The resident completes rotations with pharmacy department members and is actively involved in pharmacokinetic monitoring, responding to drug information requests, participating in medication utilization evaluations, daily rounding on medical teaching teams and developing patient care plans. Our 4 PGY2 residencies in Critical Care, Ambulatory Care, Oncology and Infectious Disease build upon the PGY1 year to create a skilled clinician within each subspecialty.
