PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice

The PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice residency is a 12-month postgraduate ASHP-accredited program that provides a structured, directed and professional learning experience. The program builds on previous education and experience and is directed toward developing a generalist expert knowledge and skills in pharmacotherapy management.

Patient care services include patient education, drug information and direct patient care activities. The program structure allow for a focused approach to the training, particularly in Ambulatory Care, Pediatrics and Critical Care if the resident has an interest in a certain area of practice.

The UMMC's residency programs instill the philosophy that pharmacists are responsible and accountable for medication therapy outcomes. The program is flexible and allows the resident to pursue individual interests and goals. There will be required learning experiences in each focus selected with a wide variety of electives.
