PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program

Georgia Regents Medical Center  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.

This residency trains pharmacists for practice as clinician-educators providing advanced clinical services in academic health care settings or other organized health-system environments with substantive precepting and/or teaching responsibilities.  They will be leaders and change agents at their practice site and for the profession. Many graduates continue with PGY2 specialty training before entering clinical practice or assuming a clinical faculty role.
