United Pharmacy Residency

  • The purpose of our PGY-1 pharmacy practice residency program is "to provide experience and knowledge that fosters the development of skills to fulfill the challenges of evolving roles in pharmacy practice."

    Our program goals include:

    • developing leadership skills
    • providing effective care
    • collaborating with other health care providers to achieve positive patient outcomes
    • developing effective self-evaluation and self-learning skills
    • gaining an appreciation of the interrelationship of clinical systems, technology and distribution systems to provide an effective medication-use system.

    Pharmacy residents develop advanced practice skills in managing drug therapy for a variety of diseases, as well as build proficiency in communicating daily with physicians, nurses and pharmacists. Resident goals and objectives are taught and evaluated using the  American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Residency Learning System (RLS). Four one-year resident positions are available beginning July 1.
