Pharmacy Residency Program PGY1

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 committees, precept pharmacy students, and more. The program design is open to giving 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.
