Rhode Island Hospital, in partnership with the College of Pharmacy at the University of Rhode Island, offers American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency programs in ambulatory care and oncology. Rhode Island Hospital is also pleased to offer two PGY1 pharmacy practice residency positions beginning Summer 2018.

Residents are directed in skills critical to patient care, communication and leadership within a multidisciplinary health care team.

Purpose

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) 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.

PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

  • PharmD degree from an accredited school/college of pharmacy
  • Eligibility for Rhode Island licensure
  • Completion of PGY1 residency for PGY2 residencies
