PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Programs
The University of Chicago Medical Center has both a PGY1 Pharmacy Residency as well as Non-Traditional Track Residency Programs.
ASHP defines the residency purpose to be by the type of practice for which the residents are to be prepared. UCM residency training emphasizes a real world pharmacy perspective which will prepare a resident to practice as a clinical pharmacist in an acute care health- system practice setting. By integrating the vast roles and responsibilities of a pharmacist into their clinical training, residents learn to balance professional and operational practice with pharmacy leadership, teaching, and research.
PGY1 Program Statement of Purpose: PGY1 pharmacy residency programs 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.
