PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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 PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at The Valley Hospital:
Creates leaders in the pharmacy profession through the development of project management skills and utilization of knowledge about the clinical, technical and technological aspects of pharmacy practice
Cultivates competent clinicians with expertise in drug therapy in pharmacy practice as an integral member of the healthcare team in acute and ambulatory care settings
Prepares skillful practitioners to provide education to healthcare providers, patients, pharmacy students and the community
As one of the first residency programs in New Jersey, Valley has been proudly involved in pharmacy residency training since 1972. We currently offer two (2) PGY1 positions in our program.
After an orientation to the pharmacy department, the resident begins a series of rotations and longitudinal activities designed to meet the goals and objectives of The Valley Hospital PGY1 Residency Program. The program is extremely flexible, permitting individualization of the residents’ schedules based on their interests.
During clinical rotations, the resident participates in all aspects of patient medication use therapy, including selection, assessment, monitoring, reconciliation, safety and adherence. The resident will work as part of the multidisciplinary team advising physicians, nurses and patients on the appropriate medication use.
The resident will also be responsible for completing adverse drug reaction reports for P&T committee; in-service education; a medication use evaluation/residency project; ASHP midyear poster presentation; and a platform presentation at the annual Eastern States Residency Conference.
