PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency

The PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program has been accredited by ASHP since 1994, offering residents the opportunity to participate in collaborative, integrated care in health system pharmacy practice. Residents apply advanced practice-based skills, expand leadership skills, participate in professional organizations, and participate in innovative approaches to delivery of care.

Providence Portland Medical Center and Providence St. Vincent Medical Center have implemented a layered learning model, with pharmacy student/resident/attending pharmacist teams on each of the core clinical services lines, modeled after the medical education model. The teams work collaboratively with health care practitioners to provide patient care and improve medication management across transitions in care. The PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program provides broad experience and confidence in practice-based skills across diverse practice settings while offering the opportunity to obtain focused experience in areas of interest. The PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency Program offers 15 resident positions. Each of our larger tertiary care (500-bed) medical centers serves as home base for eight pharmacy residents

All 15 residents from Providence Portland Medical Center and Providence St. Vincent Medical Center are part of a single PGY1 program. All residents rotate throughout our health system and come together regularly for meetings, conferences and projects.
