The purpose of PGY1 Pharmacy Residency programs is to build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education. Outcomes contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions. Post residency, candidates are eligible for board certification and postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Memorial Regional Hospital was established in 2006 and is American Society of Health (ASHP) accredited. Memorial's pharmacy residents practice excellent, patient-focused pharmaceutical care, with the goals of promoting favorable patient outcomes, improving the health status of the community and achieving a high level of patient satisfaction. Residents study several clinical specialties and provide care for a wide range of patients. They also educate patients, pharmacists, nurses, physicians and other members of the healthcare team on drug-related topics.

Our multi-site residency program has affiliated experiences with Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Memorial Regional Hospital South and Memorial Cancer Institute. Upon completion, participants are competent pharmacists with enhanced clinical skills and knowledge, able to contribute greatly to the pharmacy profession.
