PGY1 Community-Based Residency

PGY1 residency programs build upon 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 and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.

IU Health Pre-Candidate PGY1 Community Based Pharmacy Residency Program emphasizes the development of advanced knowledge and application of pharmacotherapeutics in outpatient and ambulatory care settings. This program cultivates the skills of practice management and education and the professional attitudes of self-evaluation, self-improvement, and accountability. The successful resident will demonstrate a desire to learn, sincere interest in the profession, and dedication to achieving all outcomes of the residency.

The ASHP accreditation standard provides criteria that every program must meet in order to receive and maintain accreditation. Although the standard requires experiences in certain core areas, there is room for concentration in a practice area and for additional experiences. Our program includes developing a core skill set in understanding third party payers and their impact on implementing care plans. In addition, focus will be placed on project based research and team functioning, presentation development and delivery, and direct patient interaction.
