Pharmacy Residency Program

Post-Graduate Year 1

The Postgraduate Year One (PGY-1) Pharmacy Residency at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital located in Brooklyn, New York, is an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited post-graduate program consisting of 12 months of professional practice learning experience. The PGY-1 residency program's goals, objectives, and evaluation procedures are established to be consistent with the accreditation standards developed by ASHP. This program allows the resident to train and develop competence in an acute-teaching facility focusing on direct patient care and research. This program allows sufficient flexibility to adapt to the needs and interests of the individual resident, yet provides the basic foundation to develop professional practice skills.

This 12-month residency program will allow the resident to achieve the following competency areas upon the completion of the program:

  • Provide evidence-based patient-care medication therapy management with interdisciplinary teams
  • Manage and improve the medication-use process through advancing practice and improving patient care
  • Exercise leadership and practice management skills
  • Provide teaching, education, and dissemination of knowledge to a variety of health care professionals (i.e., pharmacists, physicians, nurses, students)

Upon completion of this program, the resident will be prepared to enter a specialty residency, fellowship program or a clinical practice position.
