Pharmacy Residency Program Awarded Full Accreditation by ASHP

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program at the Infirmary has been awarded full 8-year accreditation by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists. 

The PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on pharmacy 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 pharmacy residency program at CHI St. Vincent is designed to develop a well-rounded pharmacy practitioner and future leader in pharmacy practice, who is clinically prepared for an advanced level of practice at a community-based hospital. Our residency gives in-depth experience in broad areas of pharmacy practice, including internal medicine, critical care, infectious disease, cardiology, medication safety, emergency medicine, and antimicrobial stewardship. The resident’s activities include, but are not limited to, education for coworkers and patients, multi-disciplinary rounds, precepting pharmacy students, major research project to present at a residents conference, poster presentation, pharmacy committee participation, MUE and new drug reviews, and the opportunity to complete a teaching certificate and/or research certificate program.
