The PGY-1 pharmacy residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center is a twelve-month structured training program focusing on acute care. This ASHP-accredited residency has core and elective learning experiences delivered longitudinally or in four week blocks, which are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the resident. The program is designed to enhance the resident’s skills and competence in providing optimal pharmaceutical care to diverse patient populations.
As part of the training, the resident will develop a broad understanding of pharmacotherapeutic principles, as well as ethical and socioeconomic issues affecting medical care and pharmacy practice. Additionally, the resident will build on his or her practice management and leadership skills through administrative functions.
This program is affiliated with St. John’s University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. The resident will have multiple opportunities to precept and teach pharmacy students, partake in educational activities on and off campus, and acquire a teaching certificate through the College of Pharmacy. The program strives to provide the resident with the necessary skills to develop a personal program for self study and professional growth through guidance, assistance, and supervision from the Department of Pharmacy and St. John’s University clinical faculty. Furthermore, the resident will participate in Northwell Health initiatives and network with other residents and clinical pharmacists.
