Pharmacy Residency Programs

Thank you for your interest in Bayhealth’s Pharmacy Residency Programs. We offer two programs: A Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency and a Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Community-Based Pharmacy Residency.

Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program

The purpose of the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Bayhealth is to build upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, to help them become eligible for board certification, and to prepare pharmacists for clinical acute care positions, adjunct faculty positions, or postgraduate year two (PGY2) training in a focused practice area. Our residents have access to integrated systems, excellent resources and multiple healthcare team members all working together to provide quality care to all of the patients we serve.

Program Overview

The Bayhealth PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is a one-year training program primarily in an inpatient healthcare practice setting. Through guided practice, the PGY1 resident will have the opportunity to develop skills, competencies and professional expertise in a hospital pharmacy. The program is customized to meet the needs and interests of the resident, providing the foundation for practice in multiple roles within the healthcare system. The resident will be an integral part of the healthcare system with exposure to a variety of clinical experiences and a comprehensive understanding of the medication use system within the hospital.

In order to provide training in all aspects of contemporary pharmacy practice, the resident will complete organized learning experiences in the following practice areas: infectious disease, internal medicine/nutrition, cardiology, critical care, oncology, ambulatory care, and rehabilitation medicine. Bayhealth started its PGY1 residency program in 2003. The program received ASHP accreditation in March 2005 and was re-accredited most recently in 2017.

Additional Responsibilities

During the program, the resident will be required to complete a variety of activities including presenting an ACPE accredited lecture, conducting a Medication Use Evaluation, completing a residency research project, and providing clinical instruction to pharmacy students. The current staffing commitment for postgraduate year one residents is every third weekend and eight evening hours per every two-week pay period.

Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program

The purpose of the Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program at Bayhealth is to help pharmacists become eligible for board certification and to prepare pharmacists for community or ambulatory care positions, adjunct faculty positions, or postgraduate year two (PGY2) training in a focused practice area.

Program Overview

The Bayhealth PGY1 Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program is a one-year training program in a diverse community practice setting. The residency program focuses on the development of skills necessary to practice at a high level in a community pharmacy environment. The program is designed based on the belief that the better community care providers are those who clearly understand what patients experience throughout the continuum of care, through clinic, acute care and traditional care environments. Residents will participate in all aspects of our comprehensive community service. The program is designed to provide exposure to general and specialty community care experiences, with experiences, MTM, DME and disease-based clinics.

As a vital member of the healthcare team, the resident will be offered the opportunity to enhance his/her knowledge, attitude and skills needed to evaluate drug therapy for optimal client outcomes, and will be able to demonstrate effective organizational and integrative skills. The resident will gain skills that assist in developing cost-effective, quality clinical services, while acquiring the foundation skills needed to become an effective leader. The program will be developed with every effort to meet the resident’s interests and career goals.
