The Community-Based Pharmacy Residency (PGY-1) is a one-year program designed to provide diverse experiences in pharmaceutical care in the community practice setting.
This program builds 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 (PGY2) residencies and professional certifications. The program offers advanced training in optimizing the care of diverse patient populations as they transition from a health system setting. Graduates of the program are prepared to provide advanced patient care services in the community pharmacy with independent, chain, and integrated health systems pharmacies. Completion of the teaching certificate program through Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) qualifies the residency graduate for positions in shared faculty/academia.
Learning experiences include ambulatory leadership, managed care/employee health plan, drug information, community pharmacy, advanced community pharmacy, anticoagulation, specialty pharmacy, primary care, transitional care management, heart failure, and HIV ambulatory care clinic. Residents participate in a weekend staffing rotation and must work one major and one minor holiday. Required projects include: conduct a research/quality improvement project that results in a publishable manuscript, create a business plan for a new or enhanced service; and author a collaborative practice agreement, standing order, or state-based protocol.
Presentations are given at various meetings including resident conference and local, state, and national poster presentations.
