PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program

Georgia Regents Health System  provides a 12 month ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency, which is offered in conjunction with the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy.  This post-graduate experience provides comprehensive training in acute care, ambulatory care, long term care, drug information, drug-use policy development, practice management, teaching and research.  The flexibility of the program allows residents to individualize a program to meet their specific needs and interests.  Residents also participate in patient-care area pharmacy coverage on the weekends (rotating schedule) and are responsible for completing a research project suitable for publication in a professional journal.
