PGY1/PGY2/MS Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) with Masters Program
Pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY-2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY-2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available
The Pharmacy Residency Program is a 24 month program, resulting in an MS degree in Pharmacy Leadership & Administration from University of Houston, as well as a Post-Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) and Post-Graduate Year 2 (PGY2) certificate, upon successful completion.
