PGY1 Residency Program

Mission, Vision, Values

The PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program at Community Medical Center offers opportunities for residents to strengthen and expand their clinical knowledge, hone research and presentation skills and develop confidence to practice as clinical pharmacists in a variety of health care settings.

There are two PGY1 position available at CMC. We participate in the Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service and will be participating in the ASHP Residency Matching Service for all classes.

Graduates of the program will develop and strengthen the following:

  • Leadership and pharmacy practice management
  • Time management and project coordination
  • Evidence-based, patient-centered medication management with interdisciplinary teams
  • Provide education to health care professionals and the public
  • Perform pharmacy practice research
    • The resident will be involved in all stages of research from project conception to completion. They will present their findings at ASHP’s Midyear meeting and at the Eastern States Residency conference
  • Practical application of pharmacotherapy principles


PGY1 pharmacy residency programs 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.
