The PGY1/PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) residency is a twenty-four month combined training program. The resident will also concurrently complete a Master of Business Administration (MBA) through Augusta University Hull College of Business.
This program has been established to train the future leaders of our profession by providing them with the tools and knowledge to lead patient-centered care in a dynamic heath care environment. The PGY1 program will focus on foundational comprehensive clinical training, with the PGY2 focused in pharmacy administration and leadership.
A PGY2 health-system pharmacy administration and leadership residency builds upon PGY1 residency graduates’ competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services to prepare residents who can 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. The residency lays the foundation for continued growth in management and leadership skills.
Upon graduation, residents are prepared for a clinical or operational management/supervisory role in a variety of work settings.
Applicants must possess a Pharm.D. degree from an ACPE-accredited college or school of pharmacy and must be eligible for licensure as a pharmacist in the State of Georgia.
