The First Step To Becoming A Clinician
The PGY1 residency is a one year program designed to provide a broad pharmaceutical care experience. Applicants should have completed a PharmD degree. The program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Experiential training in pharmaceutical care is provided by practicing clinicians in a wide variety of patient care areas. Required experiences include internal medicine, drug information/pharmacy administration, critical care, infectious diseases, and ambulatory care or internal medicine II. Numerous elective experiences are available to each resident to complete their training. In order to provide an individualized approach to post-graduate education, the specific needs and goals of each resident will be assessed and a program will be designed for each individual. In addition to clinical experiences, residents will complete a residency project, participate in didactic and experiential teaching and gain writing and drug policy experience. Barnes-Jewish Hospital participates in the ASHP residency matching program for the PGY1 residency. Applicants must submit a completed application, a personal statement, all pharmacy transcripts, three letters of recommendation and curriculum vitae. An on-site interview is required.
