Health-System Pharmacy Administration


A PGY2 health-system pharmacy administration residency builds upon PGY1 residency graduates’ competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services to prepare residents who can assume high level managerial, supervisory, and leadership responsibilities. Areas of competence emphasized during the program include safe and effective medication-use systems, quality assurance, the management of human resources, the management of financial resources, use of technology, and advanced leadership. The residency lays the foundation for continued growth in management and leadership skills with the expectation that with fifteen years of successful pharmacy administration practice, the residency graduate should be ready to assume directorship of a large hospital or health system pharmacy.

Upon graduation, residents are prepared for a clinical or operational management/supervisory role in a variety of work settings including small to mid-size hospitals, large health systems, and pharmacy benefit management organizations.
