Pharmacy Residency Program

Comprehensive, Personalized Training for Your Clinical Pharmacy Career



Holy Name's PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is a 12-month intensive, structured program based on ASHP accreditation standards for the comprehensive professional development of clinical pharmacists. It builds upon the knowledge and skills that individuals have gained from an accredited Doctor of Pharmacy degree program and provides practical experience demonstrating the ability to manage patient care and achieve optimal drug therapy outcomes. Through exposure to a wide variety of both required and elective rotations, educational conferences, and participation in hospital committees, the resident acquires competencies that can be applied to any position, in any practice setting.

The PGY1 resident gains competency in four areas, encompassing multiple practical and scholarly activities:

R1: Patient care: direct patient care, staffing/outreach activities

R2: Advancing practice and improving patient care: project, practice management learning experience

R3: Leadership and management: clinical leadership, practice management learning experience, project, staffing

R4: Teaching, education and dissemination of knowledge: formal presentations/inservices, teaching certificate program, co-precepting pharmacy students, direct patient care
