PGY1 Community-Based Pharmacy Residency
Prepare for a Future as a Health Care Provider & a Clinical Faculty Member
The College of Pharmacy at NEOMED offers a postgraduate year one (PGY1) Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program with an ambulatory care and teaching focus designed to cultivate practitioners who develop clinical expertise, educate future pharmacists, enhance their leadership and project management skills, and engage in research. Graduates of the residency program are prepared to provide pharmaceutical care services to an underserved population in a community or ambulatory care setting and to become a clinical faculty member at a school of pharmacy.
Pharmacy residents participating in the PGY1 Community-Based Pharmacy program develop and enhance skills in five distinct learning experiences: pharmaceutical care and practice management, distribution/staffing, teaching, project management, and entrepreneurship and leadership.
