PGY1/PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration & Leadership
The Heath-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) residency program is a 24-month, full-time program, which combines traditional PGY1 pharmacy residency requirements with a PGY2 residency in HSPAL. The program enrolls one resident into the 24-month program each year.
The program is designed for residents to develop solid clinical and administrative skills necessary to become leaders in health-system pharmacy and various other healthcare environments. Through directed practical experience, this specialized residency is designed to develop expert skills and competencies in pharmacy practice leadership. This will be accomplished through a diverse offering of clinical, management, research, and teaching experiences. The program emphasizes the dynamic role of the pharmacy leader within a large, metropolitan, multi-campus hospital enterprise.
Residents have the opportunity to combine their residency program experiences with didactic coursework from the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health to earn a Master of Health Administration. The MHA application is completed after the match, and residents participating in this part-time program will have evening courses geared toward healthcare professionals. Residents are able to integrate coursework with rotations and projects to elevate their experiences.
