Program Overview

The purpose of the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program at Regional One Health is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

The Regional One Health PGY1 pharmacy residency prepares clinical pharmacists for tertiary care health-system practice, to serve as adjunct faculty for colleges of pharmacy, and/or to pursue a PGY2 residency in a specialized area of practice, particularly ambulatory care, medicine, or critical care. Pharmacists completing this program will be capable of conducting their practice with a high level of maturity and leadership and be able to perform practice-related projects.

The PGY1 Pharmacy Ambulatory Residency Program at Regional One Health is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The 12-month (2,000 hour minimum) program is composed of advanced pharmacy experiences. Residents receive training and develop professional competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and pharmacy services. The program helps ensures the success of residents and that exemplary pharmacists are identified for further development for contributions to patient care and for the benefit of the profession. Residents must be pharmacists committed to attaining excellence in professional competence beyond entry-level practice, committed to attaining our program’s educational goals and objectives, and passionly support our organization’s mission and values.
