Vanderbilt University Medical Center offers a combined PGY1 Pharmacy Practice / PGY2 Health System Pharmacy Administration residency. The program will offer comprehensive experience in a variety of pharmacy practice and health system pharmacy administration areas. The purpose of this program is to transition the new practitioner through a pharmacy practice PGY1 generalist program followed by a PGY2 specialized practice that meets the needs of the health system pharmacy practice resident in developing administrative practice skills.
Graduates will be equipped to assume leadership positions in various facets of health system pharmacy administrative practice, including gaining expertise in health system pharmacy operations and using business tools and knowledge to understand and plan for the continual transitions happening in today’s health care system. Other experiences in staff management, making complex financial and organizational decisions, and techniques for functioning in a fast paced environment will be provided. Graduates will gain experience in development of return on investment presentations for new programs, development of analytics capability, and possess the experience to lead practice change in the health system.
