PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency
This residency program was established in conjunction with the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) School of Pharmacy. The 12-month American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited PGY-1 program offers the resident a robust experience through seven core rotations along with a broad range of elective opportunities. The purpose of the St. Elizabeth’s Hospital PGY-1 Residency is to develop pharmacists with advanced knowledge and skills essential for them to function as an integral member of the health care team. Though our affiliation with SIUE School of Pharmacy we offer more than fifteen unique learning experiences; thus allowing the resident flexibility to individualize their training.
Required learning experiences include: Operational Pharmacy Practice, Drug Information, Internal Medicine & Advanced Internal Medicine, Administration, Medication Safety and Ambulatory Care. Ambulatory Care experiences are longitudinal and may be selected from VA and non-VA chronic disease state management clinics.
Elective rotations available include but are not limited to Cardiology, Oncology, Mental Health, Pain and Palliative Care, Pediatrics, Infectious Disease, Informatics and Emergency Medicine.
Teaching Activities and Certificate Teaching activities are incorporated throughout the residency. The residents precept pharmacy students during the clinical rotations, provide seminars to the Saint Louis University Family Medicine physicians and present continuing education programs. To enhance the resident’s learning experience, a teaching certificate is offered through the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy. Through focused on-line instruction, leading of small-group discussions and presentation of didactic lectures at SIUE, the residents are provided a foundation of educational principles and the opportunities to apply them in various practice settings.
