Pharmacy Residency Program

PGY1 Pharmacy Residency

The ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at CaroMont Regional Medical Center was started in 1996 with one resident and currently trains four residents each year.

The purpose of the CRMC PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is to 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.

PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency

The ASHP-accredited PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency at CaroMont Regional Medical Center began in 2010 with one resident and now educates two residents yearly in this specialized area of pharmacy practice.

The purpose of the CRMC PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in the specialized practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists).
