Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) 

Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program 

Mission:  Our mission is to build healthy lives together by cultivating practitioners that use principles of pharmaceutical care to develop, implement and deliver comprehensive patient care services that work to optimize patient outcomes and put them at the center of their healthcare while educating both patients and other healthcare providers. 

 

Purpose Statement: To build upon the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop community-based pharmacist practitioners with diverse patient care, leadership, and education skills who are eligible to pursue advanced training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies and professional certifications.   

 

Program Description: Family Health Services PGY1 Community Pharmacy Residency 

Graduates will be prepared to provide pharmaceutical ambulatory care services to an underserved population in a community family practice setting including but not limited to diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic disease state management.  Residents are provided the opportunity to accelerate their clinical skills beyond entry-level professional competencies in patient-centered care and disease state management.  Upon completion of the program, the resident will be able to provide medication therapy management (MTM) to patients, provide services designed to promote community wellness, provide disease state management, assist and potentially lead clinical program development as well as a dispensing role teaching certificate and optional teaching certificate.  Family Health Services does offer a unique environment to its residents in that it is an FQHC.  We utilize integrated team-based patient care, project management, and a diverse patient population.
