Pharmacy Residency PGY-1
The 12-month Pharmacy Residency (PGY-1) emphasizes both acute and ambulatory
care, through required rotations in transitions of care, internal medicine,
critical care, ambulatory care, and emergency medicine. Additional learning
experiences available to the resident also include inpatient and outpatient
cardiology, psychiatry, and a teaching certificate in conjunction with
Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED).
Residents will provide staffing coverage every third weekend and provide
ambulatory care in our chronic disease management clinic one day every
third week. Occasional presentations to pharmacy personnel, medical staff,
nursing staff or the community also will be required.
Graduates from our program have gone on to successfully complete PGY-2
residencies in Psychiatry, Infectious Disease, and Ambulatory Care. Those
not pursuing a PGY-2 have established themselves as successful clinical
pharmacists at Southwest General and throughout northeast Ohio.
