Pharmacy Residency Program
The ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at CaroMont Regional Medical
Center began in 1996 and now offers three positions each residency year.
During the year our residents receive training in the community hospital
setting while working with experienced preceptors who mentor the residents
and challenge the residents to achieve their individual professional goals.
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.
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 or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully
complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced
patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board
certification, if available.
