The PGY1 and PGY2 health-system pharmacy administration and leadership residency is a two-year residency, fulfilling the requirements of both a PGY1 residency and a PGY2 health-system pharmacy administration and leadership residency. The PGY1 year will be the same as our stand-alone PGY1 residency. The PGY2 program will build upon the PGY1 residency graduates’ competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services to prepare residents to assume high level managerial, supervisory, and leadership responsibilities. Areas of competence emphasized during the program include safe and effective medication-use systems, quality assurance and improvement, the management of human resources, the management of financial resources, use of technology, and advanced leadership. Upon graduation, residents will be prepared for a clinical or operational management/supervisory role within the pharmacy enterprise in a large academic medical center. This program is in candidate status and we are currently considering the addition of a Master’s degree to the program.
