Statement of Purpose
Our PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency program builds on 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 postgraduate year two (PGY-2) pharmacy residency training.
PGY-1 Pharmacy Residents will have the opportunity to work in an academic tertiary care center, a community hospital, and a university setting, exposing them to a diverse constituency of patients, healthcare providers, and students. Each resident will have a primary site at one of the Temple University Health System hospitals where their projects, staffing, and management experiences will be centered. The collegial relationship of the Health System and Temple University School of Pharmacy provides excellent opportunities and access to a strong array of faculty preceptors and an exciting learning environment.
There are 5 PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency positions available:
- 4 residents will complete projects, staffing, and management components at Temple University Hospital – Main Campus
- 1 resident will complete their projects, staffing, and management component at Jeanes Campus
