The PGY1 Pharmacy is an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)-accredited residency program. PGY1 residents take on the role of clinical pharmacists and provide care to patients in a variety of patient care settings under the guidance of skilled preceptors. A major strength of the program is the large number of clinical faculty members and instructors with many years of experience in various clinical specialties (e.g. oncology, infectious disease, pediatrics, transplant, critical care) and in the areas of management, health outcomes, medication use policy and teaching. Residents grow exponentially in their clinical skills and gain experience in teaching, research, pharmacy operations, and medication use policy and evaluation. The program places an emphasis on the provision of pharmaceutical care in many patient care areas, research and teaching of pharmacy students and health care practitioners.
