The PGY1 pharmacy residency programs at Emory University Hospital Midtown builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
The PGY1 pharmacy residency at Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM) is an individualized, organized training program designed to develop clinicians to practice independently and excel in clinical service, teaching and research. The program provides opportunities in both a variety of general and specialized practice settings. Residents will spend the majority of their time at EUHM, a community-based academic medical center. In addition, residents will have the opportunity to complete rotations at other Emory Healthcare sites. Rotation schedules are flexible and designed to provide residents with a solid foundation of core experiences with ample opportunity for pursuing individual interests. Each resident is assigned a residency advisor to guide them through the program, as well as to ensure that the goals of both the resident and program are being met. Residents develop a customized training plan at the beginning of the year. PharmAcademic™ is utilized to evaluate the resident's performance, which includes global evaluations conducted with the advisor and program director throughout the year.
The PGY1 residency program of EUHM utilizes the collective assets of the Emory Hospitals to train and educate residents in contemporary pharmacy practice in a health system so that the resident may:
- Function effectively as the pharmacist on multidisciplinary healthcare teams;
- Utilize practice management skills to promote rational and safe use of medications;
- Identify, prevent and resolve medication-related problems for patients in acute healthcare settings;
- Master personal development skills for life-long learning and professional growth;
- Gain skills in and contribute to teaching and research.
