Pharmacy Residency Program PGY1
Residency Program Special Features:
Highpoint Health offers a unique experience for Residents. Our community hospital provides multiple services, giving Residents the opportunity to become a well-rounded clinical practitioner. Residents will participate in multidisciplinary rounding, be responsible for various clinical consults, manage inpatient anticoagulation and pharmacokinetic dosing, provide drug information for healthcare providers, participate on multiple committees, carry a patient load in the outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic, and more. The program design is open to give Residents the opportunity to experience all that Highpoint Health has to offer, as well as any special areas of interest. Residents will complete a teaching certificate through the University of Cincinnati, an Anticoagulant Provider Certificate through the University of Southern Indiana, ACLS Certification, and PALS Certification. After completion of the PGY1, Residents will be well suited for a career in hospital pharmacy, BCPS certification, or a PGY2 experience.
