Emory University Hospital’s post-graduate year one (PGY-1) pharmacy residency prepares you to practice independently and excel in clinical service, teaching, and research. The program offers learning opportunities in general and specialized practice settings.
Residents will spend most of their time at the Emory University Hospital (EUH), the primary teaching site for Emory University and the flagship hospital of Emory Healthcare. It is the seventh-highest volume solid organ transplant center in the nation and home to Winship Cancer Institute, Georgia's only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center.
In addition, residents can complete rotations at other Emory Healthcare sites that are not offered at Emory University Hospital. Rotation schedules are flexible and designed to provide residents with a solid foundation of core experiences and ample opportunities for pursuing individual interests.
Residents develop a customized training plan at the beginning of the year. A residency advisor guides residents through the program and ensures identified goals are met.
During the PGY-1 program at EUH, residents will:
- 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
