PGY1 Residency

The Post Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) pharmacy residency program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is an ASHP accredited 12-month, full-time program that begins in July. It is designed to provide pharmacy professionals with the knowledge and skills required to become leading clinicians in a dynamic healthcare field. Residents will have the opportunity to work alongside leading researchers and clinicians at the forefront of pharmacy practice and medicine.

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital offers four PGY1 pharmacy residency positions. We offer a flexible program customized to each resident through our extensive clinical practice programs in adults and pediatrics including administration, critical care, drug information, infectious diseases, internal medicine, oncology, and solid organ transplantation (heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas).

The purpose of the PGY1 residency program is to 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.

The program consists of exposure to varying specialties through required and elective rotations. Residency rotations include:

Required Rotations (5 weeks) Elective Rotations (5 weeks)
Orientation Internal Medicine II Emergency Medicine
Internal Medicine I Critical Care II Advanced Heart Failure
Critical Care I Infectious Diseases II Burn Unit
Infectious Diseases I Pediatrics II Hematology / Oncology I
Pediatrics I Pharmacy Informatics Hematology / Oncology II
Practice Management Academia Solid Organ Transplantation I
Drug Information Ambulatory Care Solid Organ Transplantation II

Residents may complete required or elective rotations at either medical center, as preceptor availability permits.

Please refer to the Supplementary Information for additional learning experiences PGY1 residents participate in during the residency year.

Compensation and Benefits

Residents earn an annual stipend of $46,500. Additional benefits include health, dental, and life insurance, sick leave, paid time off, and travel reimbursement for professional meetings. Residents also qualify for on-site subsidized housing, if available.
