The PGY1 residency program at University of Utah Health is an organized, directed, ASHP-accredited, postgraduate training program in health-system pharmacy practice. Eight PGY1 resident positions are available each year: 5 in Track A (General) and 3 in Track B (Ambulatory & Specialty). All residents receive comprehensive training with required experiences in practice and operations orientation, drug information, pharmacy administration, primary care, acute internal medicine, adult ICU selective, and transitions of care selectives. Residents are then free to choose from a wide variety electives in acute care, ambulatory care, and specialty consult areas.
Track A has both clinical and operational staffing duties at University of Utah Hospital, while Track B has staffing duties at one of three community pharmacies in the U of U Health system. Also, each Track B resident has the opportunity to complete a longitudinal, direct patient care rotation in the community clinic where they staff, though all residents are given the option to take a longitudinal clinic rotation.
PGY1 residents at University of Utah Health have flexibility in selecting from many rotation options in a wide variety of practice areas. The experience of each resident may be modified as career plans progress throughout the year. Residents develop skills as a clinician, project manager, writer, instructor, preceptor, and presenter. The residency preceptors and medical teams view the resident as both a learner and a colleague.
