St. Luke's Hospital Pharmacy Residency Programs

PGY1 Pharmacy Residency

Program Goals
The purpose of this training program is to prepare role model practitioner-educators for entry into clinical pharmacy positions or further post-graduate training.
This is accomplished by:
  • Practicing in multidisciplinary patient care settings in internal medicine.
  • Receiving formal instruction and mentoring in didactic and experiential teaching methods.
  • Assist in precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students in clinical clerkships.
  • Enhancing verbal and written communication skills through clinical practice activities, didactic teaching and seminar presentations.
Program Design
Three PGY1 Pharmacy Residency positions are available. The resident will complete 9 rotation blocks of five weeks in duration.
5 Core Rotations:

  • Internal Medicine (two of the three subspecialties)
    • Cardiology
    • General Medicine
    • Neurology
  • Critical Care (Medical ICU)
  • Infectious Disease
  • Pharmacy Management / Patient Safety

Elective Rotations:

Other: Orientation (July)
Research (December)

During rotations, residents spend an appropriate amount of time under direct faculty preceptorship and the remainder of the time on their own service and assist in precepting students. The residency preceptor meets regularly with the resident to provide advice and feedback, share clinical expertise, guide student precepting activities and ensure back-up clinical coverage.
Other Activities:
Residents will enroll in a formal teaching workshop series, Resident Education Academy (REA), conducted at the USHP - St. Louis College of Pharmacy for a teaching conference. The resident will also complete a longitudinal residency research project suitable for publication, along with a formal seminar presentation. Attendance at local, regional and national professional meetings is encouraged.
