What to Expect
The PGY1 residency is a 12-month program with an emphasis in acute care. The pharmacy resident will complete both required and elective learning experiences as outlined in Rotations and Curriculum. While on clinical rotations, the resident will actively participate in multidisciplinary rounds making recommendations regarding medication therapy management. Initially, the resident will have necessary oversight and mentorship from the rotation’s preceptor. However, as the resident’s knowledge, experience and level of confidence increases, the preceptor will promote an augmented level of independence to better prepare the resident for his or her eventual practice. Additionally, the resident will meet with his or her preceptor throughout the rotation for formal topic discussions allowing for expansion and reinforcement of necessary clinical knowledge as well as for providing the resident with ongoing formative and summative feedback.
Currently, the residents’ service requirement is every other weekend, which includes both clinical services (consultation service) and pharmacy staffing. With the possible expansion to a third resident for 2022-2023, there is consideration of moving toward a slightly different staffing model. However, decisions are not yet finalized. Each resident will take approximately five weeks of call (one week in the fall and four in the spring) with a preceptor for back-up support. These weeks will align with your in-hospital service requirement.
Average Hours a Week
Residents work an average of 45 to 60 hours per week.
