Residency Program Statement of Purpose

Our PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency program builds on the knowledge learned through Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions. Upon completion of this residency, the resident will be eligible for board certification and for postgraduate year two (PGY-2) pharmacy residency training or employment as a clinical pharmacist.
