PGY1 Hospital-Based Pharmacy Residency, ASHP-accredited
The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at The University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) is an intense 12.5 month, full-time curriculum program designed to provide residents with extensive training opportunities and to develop clinicians that practice independently and excel in patient care and teaching. The program provides a variety of experiences in different settings, focusing on the four areas of practice specified in the ASHP accreditation standards: acute care, ambulatory care, drug information and administration. A teaching certificate program is available. This university-based program provides an opportunity to gain teaching experience in didactic, laboratory, small group instruction and experiential teaching.
The PGY1 program is also offered to University of Toledo and University of Toledo Medical Center pharmacy staff as a non-traditional 36 month, part-time curriculum. All requirements and opportunities are the same as those for the traditional PGY1 program, but spread over a 3 year period.
