College of Pharmacy Welcomes New Residents

July 09, 2015

The College of Pharmacy, UI Hospitals and Clinics Department of Pharmaceutical Care, and the Iowa City VA Health Care System will collectively administer residency training programs to 23 Doctor of Pharmacy graduates in 2015-2016. Six of these residents will be taking part in the PGY1 (postgraduate year one) Community Pharmacy Residency Program, working with community pharmacists at multiple sites across the state of Iowa. The other 17 will be trained in PGY1 and PGY2 (postgraduate year two) residency programs at UI Hospitals and Clinics and the Iowa City VA.

Completing a residency allows pharmacy graduates the opportunity to enhance their pharmacy practice experiences and prepares them for more advanced positions. The college’s community pharmacy residency program was the nation’s first accredited, multi-site community residency program and is the longest-running APhA/ASHP continually-accredited U.S. community pharmacy-based program. UI Hospitals and Clinics Department of Pharmaceutical Care has offered pharmacy residency programs since 1949 and has prepared graduates to go on to key clinical, academic, and pharmacy leadership positions.
