The PGY1 residency, established by CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center-Bergan Mercy and Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, is an organized, directed, post-graduate training program leading to advanced knowledge and practice skills in the area of acute patient care and pharmacotherapy. The PGY1 residency experience reflects the “ASHP Accreditation Standard for Residency Training in Clinical Pharmacy Practice”.
This program will center on developing a core skill set in medication therapy management, teaching, team functioning, communication, clinical research, literature evaluation, time management, presentation development and delivery, and direct patient interaction.
The PGY1 residency is designed to develop practitioner expertise in the provision of pharmaceutical care that centers on development of knowledge and skills needed to become a competent and confident practitioner. The resident will be accountable for optimizing drug therapy and achieving the most favorable outcomes as a member of the health care team. The resident will provide drug information and education to patients, other health care professionals and students. The resident will become proficient in developing a means of becoming a lifelong learner, monitoring his or her own skills, and embracing a commitment to the profession. The resident will be given exposure to committee participation at CUMC-Bergan and CHI Health system-wide.
A minimum of approximately 2,000 hours of contact time, extending over a period of 50 weeks, provides for the achievement of the residency goals in acute patient care and pharmacotherapy. One-month rotations in many areas of specialization offer experience in the provision of adult pharmaceutical care. Learning experiences are based on the required rotations and elective specialty areas.
