Piedmont Columbus Regional Pharmacy Residency Programs

Pharmacy Residency group photoThe purpose of the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency 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.

Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown’s PGY1 residency program is accredited by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP), and therefore, the program is structured to maintain accreditation by following competency areas and educational goals and objectives. Through patient care, practice management, research and other various pharmaceutical practice training segments, the residency instills a philosophy of practice that embraces the concept that pharmacists must be responsible and accountable for optimum drug therapy outcomes.
