The PGY1/2 combined health-system pharmacy administration and leadership (HSPAL) residency is a two-year program, designed to train pharmacists who are interested in becoming well-rounded pharmacy leaders in all facets of the health system. Program graduates will possess the necessary skills to function as advanced pharmacy leaders in clinical, community, and academic settings. In year one, the pharmacy resident will develop a strong clinical foundation by gaining exposure to a wide breadth of clinical specialties and hospital operations. Please refer to the UCSF PGY1 Pharmacy website for additional details.
The PGY2 HSPAL 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.
In addition to the two-year combined health-system pharmacy administration and leadership training, program graduates can obtain a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration and Interprofessional Leadership (MS-HAIL) offered by UCSF’s Graduate Division during the second year of post-graduate training. The program’s hybrid curriculum is designed to equip graduates with new knowledge and competencies needed to reshape the future of healthcare in an interdisciplinary setting. The 12-month program consists of three online or in-person courses per quarter, covering a variety of topics such as healthcare policy and economics, effective business practices, and management of social and human capital. Graduates will collaborate with interprofessional colleagues to implement an evidence-based capstone quality improvement project in an area of their choosing. Upon completion, graduates of this program will be prepared for management and leadership roles across the health-system.
