Pharmacy Residency

PGY1 Residency Program Purpose

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

Program Mission

Our mission at Riverside is to care for others as we would care for those we love — to enhance their well-being and improve their health. The pharmacy residency program is rooted in the Riverside Care Difference which is the way we deliver care and services, by putting our patients and customers at the heart of all we do. The Riverside Care Difference is our commitment to deliver safety, healing, kindness and respect.

The residency program will provide each resident with specific learning/practice experiences designed to enable the resident to expand the scope of his/her practice skills. The goal of the residency program is to prepare resident pharmacists to become well-rounded competent and confident clinical pharmacists capable of working in a variety of hospital pharmacy roles to better serve the needs of our community.
