  • Pharmacy - Program Info

    The Post Graduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program at Einstein Medical Center is a full-time, ASHP-accredited residency program. The pharmacy practice residency program at Einstein Medical Center began in July 1998. The PGY1 pharmacy residents at Einstein Medical Center receive balanced and comprehensive training, as the residents play a vital role in the care of patients. The program allows for four pharmacy practice residents per year.

    Upon completion of the program, the pharmacist will be a competent practitioner able to provide a broad range of pharmaceutical services, including pharmaceutical care/drug therapy management. The pharmacist will independently and confidently manage patient disease states and the drug therapies as a key member of the healthcare team. The pharmacist will also develop the necessary skills for educating patients and other health-care professionals on drug therapy and serving as a preceptor to pharmacy students.

    Throughout the program the resident will demonstrate professional maturity by monitoring his or her own performance, by becoming a self-directed learner and by showing commitment to the profession of pharmacy.

    The PGY1 pharmacy residency program at Einstein Medical Center (AEMC) offers residents unique patient care experiences and other opportunities. Residents currently provide direct patient care in the hospital's Immunodeficiency Clinic (IDC); coordinate the hospital's outpatient Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) treatment program; and receive BLS and ACLS certifications.
