The PGY-1/PGY-2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) Residency program is a 24-month program at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) with a combined Masters’ Degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences with a specialization in Health-System Pharmacy Administration from the University of North Carolina (UNC) Eshelman School of Pharmacy.
In the first year of the program, residents will complete the same requirements of the MGH PGY-1 pharmacy residency program, supplemented with the MS degree. Our mission is to provide a dynamic, goal-oriented environment to develop a well-rounded clinical expert and to assure each resident is thoroughly trained in the provision of individualized direct patient care, clinical and didactic teaching, practice-based research and patient-centric pharmacy leadership. The PGY-1 year will develop the resident into an independent generalist practitioner with a strong clinical foundation. After completion of the first year of residency, the resident will receive a PGY-1 residency certificate.
In the second year of the program, residents work closely with the entire Mass General Department of Pharmacy Leadership Team and hospital administrators to develop competence in clinical leadership, pharmacy operations, budgeting and finance, medication safety, regulatory affairs, process improvement, ambulatory infusion leadership, and enterprise-level management. The PGY2 resident has dedicated time spent with an MGH Senior Vice President during rotations. The second-year electives are customizable to each resident's interests and career goals. Additionally, the resident can participate in a corporate pharmacy leadership role within Mass General Brigham, founded by both Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital and includes 12 additional hospitals within the system.
We currently offer one position for the combined PGY-1/PGY-2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency and Leadership / MS Program.
