Pharm-D Residency Training

Pharmacy residency programs at LCMC Health

Not only does LCMC Health hold academic affiliations with over 100 different institutions, but we also sponsor our own Pharmacy Residency PGY-1 and PGY-2 training programs.

Pharmacy residency helps residents develop the necessary clinical pharmacy skills to help patients in their care. By offering pharmacy residents diverse experiences in a variety of disciplines, our program helps residents gain a comprehensive understanding of pharmaceutical care.

Skills include:

  • Acute pain care
  • Drug facts and information
  • Management skills
  • Ambulatory and emergency care
  • Development of drug policy

The program is tailored to the unique needs of each resident and offers flexibility.

Goals of our programs

Residents who participate in our residency program are equipped with the specific skills and competencies needed to take on positions of leadership within the profession following their PGY1 program.

Some occupations available following completion of a PGY1 program include:

  • Pharmacy Specialists
  • Continuing on in training in a PGY2 program
  • Clinical faculty

Once a resident has completed the PGY1 residency, they will be able to provide pharmaceutical care in a variety of environments.

Graduates of the residency programs will be qualified to:

  • Provide excellent pharmaceutical care to patients throughout multiple practices
  • Work with healthcare teams
  • Communicate, clarify, and educate patients and other staff
  • Become a leader within the pharmaceutical profession
  • Pursue advanced specialty training
  • Work toward certification by the Board of Pharmaceutical Services (BPS)
