Bayfront Health St. Petersburg’s Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Program is designed to develop independent clinical pharmacists through cultivating advanced knowledge and skills in clinical services, teaching, and research in the acute care setting. Additionally, residents are prepared to enter the ever-changing healthcare landscape through furthering their leadership, mentoring, management, and professional abilities. Ultimately, our residents are granted opportunities to develop strong inter-professional relationships as well as participating daily within the interdisciplinary rounding healthcare team, to help improve the safety and effectiveness of the medication-use system.
Our PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program will augment the education provided by a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD). It prepares dynamic clinical pharmacists to be responsible for the medication-related care of patients with diverse conditions, be eligible for board certification as well as Postgraduate Year Two pharmacy residency training if they so desire.
We invite you to reflect on our program and all it has to offer and consider joining our team to achieve your residency goals. We look forward to meeting you at the ASHP Midyear meeting and receiving your application through PhORCAS.
