PGY1 RESIDENCY

The First Step To Becoming A Clinician

The PGY1 residency is a one-year program designed to build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities able to provide broad pharmaceutical care. Residents who successfully complete the PGY1 residency program will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education, and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (I.e., BCPS), and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies. The program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Experiential training is provided by practicing clinicians in a wide variety of patient care areas. Barnes-Jewish provides a well-rounded experience and opportunities to learn from a large number of highly-qualified preceptors.

Barnes-Jewish Hospital participates in the ASHP residency matching program for the PGY1 residency.
