With a population of approximately 65,000 people, there are plenty of opportunities for fun and exploration, including both outdoor and indoor attractions such as Mill Creek MetroParks, Lake Milton State Park, The Butler Institute of American Art and OH WOW!

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.

Call Schedule

The residents’ service requirement is every third weekend (two 10-hour shifts) and one four-hour evening shift every three weeks comprised of both clinical services (consultation service) and pharmacy staffing. Each resident will take 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.
