Pharmacy Residency Program

Baptist Health Louisville's post graduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency builds on the doctor of pharmacy education. We strive to contribute to the development of a clinical pharmacist responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and postgraduate (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

The Baptist Health Louisville PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program prepares pharmacists to assume clinical pharmacy positions. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, disease state management, interdisciplinary patient care, drug policy development and implementation, and education of pharmacy students, patients and healthcare providers. This program in a large community hospital setting will engage each of our residents in a wide variety of direct patient care, policy development, practice research, practice management and drug information delivery activities. The residency is structured and administered in a manner that facilitates the professional growth of each resident through achievement of the following desired program competencies: 1) patient care, 2) advancing practice and improving patient care, 3) leadership and management, 4) teaching, education, and dissemination of knowledge, and 5) pharmacy research.

Our residents have gone on to do PGY2's at a variety of institutions and several have remained within the Baptist Health System. Check out the "Where are they now" page to learn more.
