ASHP Accredited PGY1 Residency
ASHP Match Number: 64100
Program Overview and Information
The CoxHealth PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds on education gained through a Doctor of Pharmacy degree to develop clinical pharmacists who are responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, and who are eligible for board certification and postgraduate year two pharmacy residency training.
Our program emphasizes:
- Preceptor development
- Interdepartmental collaboration
- Leadership development
- Project management skills
- Provision of medication education
"My favorite quality about the CoxHealth residency program is that each resident is allowed the flexibility to create an experience that is uniquely their own. The program emphasizes the growth of the individual in all areas of well-being and not just as a healthcare professional. The people involved in the program had a huge impact on my life professionally and personally, which is why I chose to stay with CoxHealth upon graduation. It was a wonderful experience and a great start to my pharmacy career."
