The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency experience prepares the graduate to function as a pharmacotherapist within a health-system. The resident will rotate through 12 months of inpatient (Internal Medicine, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Pharmacokinetics/ Nutrition) and ambulatory patient care experiences to foster independent clinical decision making, through established collaborative drug therapy management agreements. A unique component of this residency is the in-house pharmacotherapist-on-call program. Residents can generally expect to be on-call once per week from 8 AM to 8 PM. On average 1 - 2 of those shifts/ month may be converted to overnight (24 hours). This will require the resident to respond to emergencies, approve restricted antimicrobials, provide drug information, dosing and pharmacokinetic consultations.
