PGY1 Pharmacy Residency - TMC
The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is an ASHP-accredited, one-year postgraduate training program that begins on July 1st annually. The program consists of rotations throughout a variety of areas that are designed to provide the resident with the skills and confidence necessary to practice as a clinical pharmacist in an acute care setting. Residents that complete the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency will be well prepared to complete advanced training by means of a PGY2 specialty residency in areas such as Cardiology, Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and others, should they desire to do so.
The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center differs from other PGY1 residency programs within the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System in that it is set within a large, academic, tertiary care medical center, and all rotations take place at the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center campus.
PGY1 Pharmacy Residents will be exposed to a broad range of experiences and activities intended to build the skills necessary to practice as a clinical pharmacist in an acute care setting. Residents are required to complete an orientation month, along with 7 month-long rotations. The remaining months will consist of a research project month and 3 month-long elective rotations.
Residents will conduct a research project throughout their residency year that includes presenting the results at a regional residency conference and preparing a written manuscript. Presentation skills will be enhanced by giving an ACPE-accredited seminar presentation along with case presentations throughout the year. Residents will also gain experience with teaching and precepting through the completion of a Teaching Certificate program and co-precepting pharmacy students on clinical rotations.
