After graduation, it is recommended that new pharmacists complete a postgraduate pharmacy residency to further develop their practice skills. Most of our graduates complete their residency training elsewhere, but every year we offer a number of residency opportunities here.
The McWhorter School of Pharmacy offers two residency programs: Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Community Pharmacy Residency and Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Pharmacy Residency.
Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Community Pharmacy Residency
This 12-month intensive learning experience is designed to develop leaders in community pharmacy through experiences in patient care, dispensing, practice management, teaching, research and public health. Currently, this residency is in partnership with Christ Health Center.
Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency
This 12-month intensive learning experience offers training in both public health and private practice chronic care outpatient settings. The program focuses your training in four primary areas: interdisciplinary patient care to insured and underserved patients, teaching, outcomes research and public health.
