PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program


PGY1 Program Purpose: PGY1 pharmacy residency programs 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.

Swedish Medical Center's ASHP-accredited PGY-1 Residency Program offers six PGY-1 resident positions. The purpose of Swedish’s PGY-1 Residency Program is to prepare resident pharmacists for hospital and ambulatory clinical positions, adjunct faculty positions, teaching and precepting positions, clinical administrative projects or further PGY-2 training in a focused area of practice. Experiences are uniquely designed to suit the individual need and interests of the resident.

Core rotations include cardiac, critical, medical, neonatal, neurology, pediatric, and surgical intensive care medicines; ambulatory care; general medicine; inpatient and outpatient oncology; kidney, liver, pancreas, and stem cell transplantation; general pediatrics; obstetrics; special care nursery; family practice; anticoagulation clinic; antimicrobial stewardship; and pharmacy practice administration. The flexible curriculum also provides the resident with the opportunity to be involved in planning, implementing and evaluating new rotations and services.
