The purpose of the St. Vincent Community-based PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency is to build upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop community-based pharmacist practitioners with diverse patient care, leadership and education skills who are eligible to pursue advanced training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY-2) residencies and professional certifications.
The philosophy of the ASHP-accredited Community-based Pharmacy Residency at Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis is to provide the residents with the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills in caring for a diverse outpatient population. The opportunity will be provided through active participation in patient-centered dispensing, evidence-based disease state management, patient/family and medical staff education, medication safety, outcomes-based research, and educational and scholarly activities. Experiences will provide the residents the ability to function independently in Community-based Pharmacy or ambulatory care environments or prepare them to pursue additional post-graduate training.
