PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Programs

The University of Chicago Medical Center has both a PGY1 Pharmacy Residency as well as Non-Traditional Track Residency Programs.
PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Purpose Statement

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.
