The Pharmacy Residency at Bayfront Health St. Petersburg is dedicated to the development of caring, mature, professionally competent clinical pharmacists. The resident will develop the skills necessary to perform as a pharmacist efficiently, while delivering the highest quality of pharmaceutical care to the community and remaining sensitive to the communities’ health care problems and resources.
The Bayfront Health St. Petersburg pharmacy residency program will build on a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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.
The Bayfront Health St. Petersburg Residency Program prepares residents to become confident and competent clinicians able to effectively contribute to an interdisciplinary team in direct patient care. The program will prepare the resident to be accountable for providing optimal care to patients through educating healthcare professionals, patients, students, and the community on drug related topics. The resident will display a commitment to the profession of pharmacy, develop skills for continued professional growth and personal assessment, and exercise leadership to provide the highest quality of pharmaceutical care to the community while remaining sensitive to the community’s health care problems, resources, and needs.
Our residency offers both longitudinal and 6-week rotations which provide core training experiences in addition to providing focused elective rotations at a community based level II trauma center.
The pharmacy team precepts students from multiple colleges of pharmacy and offers residents the opportunity to supervise and mentor these students as well as provide the opportunity to participate in the University of Florida or University of South Florida teaching certificate program.
Pharmacy residents are required to present a formal research project at the ASHP Midyear meeting and the Florida Residency Conference (FRC).
