Peconic Bay Medical Center is offering two residency positions in pharmacy practice.
The program duration is twelve months and focuses on optimizing inpatient medication therapy. It is designed to further develop competence and skills in the application of drug therapy knowledge and leadership.
Residents will experience unit-based pharmacy practice during the course of each clinical learning experience and will be involved in direct patient care. Pharmacy Residents will work collaboratively with an interdisciplinary medical team and will serve as a drug information resource. Learning experiences can be tailored with respect to the Resident’s field of interest and ASHP requirements.
This program prepares residents to assume positions as direct patient care clinicians, serve as adjunct or full-time faculty for a college of pharmacy or pursue a PGY2 residency in a focused area of practice.
