PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program Providence Holy Family Hospital

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.

Providence Holy Family Hospital is a community-based acute care hospital with an ASHP accredited PGY1 pharmacy residency program with two residents. Residents work in a patient centered learning environment to receive a well-rounded education and encounter a diverse patient population with predominantly acute care rotations as well as ambulatory experiences. Residents participate in daily clinical activities, pharmacy administrative functions, drug distribution/operations, and manage a long-term project related to pharmacy practice. Graduating residents will be qualified to pursue careers as clinical pharmacists or assume positions as clinical faculty at a college of pharmacy and be prepared to obtain board certification.

The residency program affords participants the opportunity to provide pharmaceutical care in a wide variety of patient care settings and to develop clinical skills. Upon completion of the residency program at Holy Family Hospital, residents will be highly trained acute care pharmacists with the knowledge, confidence, and experience to not only perform clinical and operational pharmacy functions, but also teach and mentor students, to further grow the profession, and drive projects to completion.
