PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program

The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Baptist Health Floyd is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) and designed to expand on the education provided by a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and prepare its graduates for positions in clinical pharmacy practice or to continue on into specialty residency training.

The PGY1 residency program is designed to enable the resident to provide progressive pharmacy services in a variety of clinical settings for an acute care regional hospital. The resident is exposed to many different clinical and professional elements important to current practices of clinical pharmacy. Responsibilities include participation in the Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee and the Antimicrobial Stewardship committee meetings and initiatives, precepting students, presenting classroom lectures and conducting valuable research to expand clinical pharmacy services. Resident’s experiences are customized and adapted throughout the year to allow them to meet their individual goals. Residency preceptors challenge the resident to excel in a supportive community environment and prepare them to be future leaders in the pharmacy profession.
