Wyoming Medical Center offers two PGY1 Pharmacy Residency spots annually. The WMC program will prepare residents to:
- Provide optimal and compassionate care
- Communicate effectively
- Educate themselves and others
- Develop problem solving, research and leadership skills
PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for post-graduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training. The 12-month learning experience will consist of seven required, three elective and three longitudinal experiences.
Residents will have the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary patient-centered care in the areas of family medicine, internal medicine, critical care, emergency services, infectious disease, ambulatory care and academia. Experiences range from 4 to 6 weeks in length.
In addition, residents will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing service activities to develop problem-solving skills, inter- and intra-disciplinary collaboration skills and be exposed to pharmacy department policy and procedures by staffing every second to third weekend in the central pharmacy. Residents will be delegated clinical responsibilities under preceptorship of an experienced pharmacist to guide the development of their practice skills. Successful completion of the Residency Program requires the achievement of at least 80% (or 26 total) of the required ASHP Residency Program Goals and Objectives at the Achieved for Residency (ACHR) level and Satisfactory Progress (SP) for all others.
