PGY1 Pharmacy Residency


Thank you for your interest in the PGY1 residency program at St. Claire Regional Medical Center. As the first community hospital pharmacy residency program in Kentucky, we have been ASHP accredited since 1987. Here you will find specific information about our program and the application progress.

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the St. Claire Regional Medical Center PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is to build on Pharm.D. education and outcomes to develop a skilled pharmacist practitioner who is prepared to be a patient-centered generalist pharmacist accountable for the care of patients with complex conditions in comparable healthcare environments, or to pursue postgraduate year two (PGY2) training.

Aims of the Program

Pharmacists who complete this residency program will be competent providers of pharmaceutical care and function expertly as integral members of the healthcare team. They will utilize innovative methods to develop and implement new services that improve the practice of pharmacy. They will be adept users of informatics systems to provide optimal care of their patients. These pharmacists will serve as reliable sources of information on drug therapies for patients, healthcare providers, students and the general public. As medication safety experts, they will incorporate processes in their practice to assure safe and optimal medication use strategies. They will demonstrate professional maturity by monitoring their own performance, developing life-long learning strategies, and participating in professional organizations. While the residency training site is a community hospital, the skills developed here will enable a practitioner to adapt to multiple healthcare environments.
