Lifespan Specialty Pharmacy PGY-1 Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program
Rhode Island Hospital (Lifespan)
Location: Providence, Rhode Island
Rhode Island Hospital (Lifespan) is proud to offer an ASHP pre-candidate PGY-1 Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program. Our residency showcase at ASHP Midyear is Monday, December 4th from 1pm - 4pm in booth 4158 - Lifespan Pharmacy.
The Lifespan Specialty Pharmacy PGY-1 Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program builds upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives. Residents who successfully complete PGY1 residency programs 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.
This residency provides extensive opportunities that foster the development of a well-rounded leader in specialty drug management and education. The residency is based in a Health-System Specialty Pharmacy, where pharmacy teams are integrated into a wide range of outpatient specialty clinics. There is an emphasis on inflammatory conditions, oncology/hematology, pulmonary conditions, and transplant. These learning opportunities are coupled with longitudinal involvement in practice management, staffing responsibilities, population health management, MTM, and research.
