WellSpan York Hospital Pharmacy Residency Programs

WellSpan York Hospital's Pharmacy Residency program features PGY1 and PGY2 programs accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to become competent pharmacy practitioners.

The Pharmacy Practice Residency Program (PGY1) offers residents flexibility and an opportunity to practice in a progressive environment that focuses on rational and cost-effective drug therapy. The one-year program provides pharmacy residents the opportunity to establish evidence-based practice, educate patients and other healthcare providers about drug therapy, evaluate medical literature, conduct two research projects, and assume responsibility for drug therapy outcomes.

These skills are developed through a combination of clinical experiences as a participant in interdisciplinary rounds with nurses, dietitians, residents, and attending physicians. Additionally, resident skills are developed through staffing opportunities and experiences in our inpatient pharmacy department.

The Critical Care Residency Program (PGY2) provides pharmacists the opportunity to expand and develop specialty care skills in drug therapy management of critically ill patients. WellSpan York Hospital features a Level 1 trauma center and a total of 60 adult intensive care unit beds, including medical, trauma, surgical, neuroscience, cardiac, and open heart. The resident may also gain experience in our 44 bed Level 3 neonatal intensive care unit. Additionally, residents gain experience working in an emergency department environment.

On the following web pages you will find descriptions of these residency programs, as well as all directions for application.
