The resident will spend the first 12 months developing a firm clinical foundation by completing clinical rotations in a variety of settings. The resident will begin to gain exposure to pharmacy operations and Department of Pharmacy Services administration through completion of projects and involvement with pharmacy leaders. Upon completion, the resident will earn a PGY1 certificate.
The primary practice sites for the UW Medicine combined PGY1/PGY2 Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership Residency program are the University of Washington Medical Center Northwest and Montlake Campuses and Harborview Medical Center. The program provides the Executive Master of Health Administration (MHA) residents or the Master of Health Informatics & Health Information Management (MHIHIM) residents 14 months of training in health system leadership practice: clinical and operational management, patient safety and process improvement, management of financial resources, human resources management, and advanced leadership development. The program offers flexibility which allows the residency to be tailored to the specific goals of the individual. The aim of the program is to prepare residents who can assume high level managerial, supervisory, and leadership responsibilities. Concurrent with rotations, the resident will be enrolled in either the Executive MHA Program or the MHIHIM Program through the University of Washington School of Pharmacy Health.
