Residency Program

PGY1/PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration & Leadership

The NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) residency program is an accredited 24-month, full-time commitment, 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.

Our residency program is designed to develop residents with solid clinical and administrative skills necessary for leaders in health-system pharmacy and various other health care 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. Residents choosing to integrate professional rotation experiences and projects with coursework will participate in this part-time management program, which is an evening course program geared toward health care professionals. Application to the MHA program is completed after the match.
