Rutland Regional Medical Center PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program
Rutland Regional Medical Center PGY1 Residency Program
Location: Rutland, Vermont
Rutland Regional Medical Center is offering a comprehensive postgraduate year 1 (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency.
The purpose of the PGY1 pharmacy residency program is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
Our program is a 12-month postgraduate curriculum that is designed to build upon their existing knowledge of medication-related care by providing frequent and direct patient care experience. Our residents will develop important problem-solving skills, as well as an understanding of their accountability and responsibility to their patients. Residents will also work to develop autonomy as they build relationships with other health care providers.
The residency program is designed to offer an individualized training plan for each resident based on their interests, goals, and past experiences. Residents are required to complete core rotations to build a strong knowledge base and have the opportunity to select elective rotations based on their area of interest. Residents will also learn to monitor and assess their own performance to continually improve their practice during their residency and beyond. Residents will work to progress over the course of the residency to be more efficient, effective, and independent in providing high quality direct patient care.
