Memorial Hospital Pembroke in Pembroke Pines, FL

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Memorial Hospital Pembroke (MHP) builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives. Residents who successfully complete PGY1 residency programs will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education, and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e., BCPS), and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.

The PGY1 Residency is accredited by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP). The residents are integrated into the pharmacy and healthcare team to develop expert knowledge in clinical patient care, medication use systems, and administrative areas. Additionally, the resident will develop skills in leadership, research, project management, and teaching. The ultimate goal of the MHP program is to develop residents into clinicians and leaders with the knowledge and experience to become confident and integral members of a healthcare team and pharmacy practice.

Memorial Hospital Pembroke’s Pharmacy Residency Program was established in 2014 and has full accreditation by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists. Our program combines clinical training with teaching and scholarly activities to develop a well-rounded clinical practitioner with leadership, confidence, and professional skills.
