PGY1 Residency Programs

The Postgraduate Year 1 (PGY1) residency programs provide training in overall delivery of healthcare with a major emphasis placed on drug-related issues and practices. During these one-year programs, the resident effectively makes the transition from student pharmacist to independent practitioner under guidance from the clinical faculty. The programs also prepare well those planning further specialized training.

The PGY1 programs' main goals are to:

  • develop skilled clinical pharmacists capable of practicing in all settings
  • provide exposure to a diverse scope of pharmaceutical care services
  • foster leaders in clinical pharmacy practice and education
