PGY1 Pharmacy Residency

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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 post graduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Providence Alaska Medical Center Residency Goals are as follows:

  • Serve as an authoritative resource on the optimal use of medications used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions.
  • Optimize outcomes by providing evidence-based, patient-centered medication therapy as an integral part of an interdisciplinary team.
  • Demonstrate competency in medication order review and central pharmacy operations
  • Supervise and coordinate pharmacy technical staff
  • Work independently in various pharmacy service areas
  • Contribute to improvement of medication use, medication use systems and pharmacy services
  • Demonstrate excellence in training and education of health care professionals
  • Sustain ongoing personal development of expertise and professionalism in pharmacy practice

The resident will demonstrate competencies in four core areas:

  • Patient Care
  • Advancing Practice and Improving Patient Care
  • Leadership and Management
  • Teaching, Education and Dissemination of Knowledge

Successful completion of the residency program involves meeting the required Residency Program Goals and Objectives as defined by ASHP for PGY1 residencies and those identified at the beginning of the residency year. An assessment of the resident’s knowledge, skills, experiences and interests will be performed prior to the beginning of the residency. Activities and elective learning experiences will be individualized based on their skills and interests.
