PGY1 Pharmacy & PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership/Masters
The Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership Residency (PGY-1 and PGY-2) and master’s degree is a specialized two-year program with the primary objective of developing pharmacy leaders who are trained and prepared to immediately assume managerial positions within large, integrated healthcare delivery systems, leading to Director of Pharmacy positions. The master’s degree is in conjunction with Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED). Residents experience training, mentoring and modeling in pharmacy administration and leadership. Residents will have exposure to central pharmacy, sterile products, emergency department, ambulatory, specialty pharmacy, and decentralized clinical services to gain experience with front-line supervision. HSPAL Residents also oversee the pharmacy internship program to gain further experience with direct supervision. In addition to presentations and projects, residents are required to complete a large project and submit a manuscript for publication.
Residents will gain instruction on the provision of safe, appropriate, and cost-effective use of medication across the continuum of care through the application of knowledge and skills in patient care. Required residency learning experiences include inpatient pharmacy operations, sterile products management, primary care, inpatient med/surg, supply chain, finance, and med safety/drug information. The residents gain knowledge to understand, analyze and manage the changing nature of today’s complex medical delivery systems and leadership skills necessary for change management and managing the pharmacy enterprise. Required activities include presentations, coursework, projects, a manuscript, and staffing and management on-call responsibilities.
