Residency Special Features:   

The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Saint Clare's Hospital is a 12-month program that is carefully designed following the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists' Accreditation Standards to ensure that a resident develops into a well-rounded, clinical practitioner through exposure to a large variety of practice areas. Upon completion of this PGY-1 program, the resident will be a competent clinical pharmacist with the necessary professional knowledge and abilities to pursue a general clinical pharmacist position, board certification, and/or a post-graduate year two (PGY-2) pharmacy residency position. The pharmacy department at Saint Clare's Hospital provides 24-hour services to all patient care areas. Pharmacists work in a decentralized model on various units including the intensive care unit, medical/surgical unit, and progressive care unit. Pharmacists participate in multidisciplinary rounds and readmission reduction efforts, provide clinical dosing and monitoring services and precept introductory and advanced pharmacy practice students. Our pharmacists provide high quality patient care with assistance from skilled pharmacy technicians and extensive forms of technology. The resident is required to complete orientation, five core rotations (internal medicine, infectious diseases, cardiology, critical care, and ambulatory care), four longitudinal rotations (practice management, medication safety, formulary management, and operational pharmacy practice), and three elective rotations (information technology, outpatient oncology, outpatient anticoagulation, nutritional support, or critical access hospital). Each experience will be tailored to the resident's abilities and interests.
