The PGY1 Residency at BIDMC builds upon Doctor of Pharmacy education to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists who are: responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for PGY2 Residency training. The PGY1 Residency provides in-depth training and experience in: internal medicine, infectious diseases, critical care, oncology, transplant, ambulatory/transitions of care, and teaching. Elective rotations are designed to align with the resident’s interests and career plans. Longitudinal activities provide the resident with experiences in pharmacy and health-system leadership, the formulary and medication use process, drug policy and medication safety. Each resident is responsible for completing a residency project and manuscript.
