Pharmacy Practice Residency Program

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Practice Residency Program is to provide organized and directed pharmacy training in an academic medical center setting and community hospital setting, depending on your location selection.

Three Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Practice Residency Programs are offered within CHI Health Nebraska; two programs are located in Omaha – CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center - Bergan Mercy and CHI Health Immanuel and one program is located in Lincoln – CHI Health St. Elizabeth’s.  Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions is affiliated with the two pharmacy residency programs offered in Omaha.  A separate application is needed to apply to each residency program.

Each program develops the knowledge and skills of the resident in various areas including: medication therapy management, communication, practice management, critical thinking, time management, clinical research, drug information and teaching. Each program also offers the resident the opportunity and stimulus to develop, to the highest degree obtainable, his/her professional expertise as a practitioner. Graduates of a CHI Health pharmacy residency program will be highly qualified to practice as pharmacist clinicians in patient care positions, adjunct faculty positions, or for PGY2 training in their area of choice.

Structure

The residency schedule consists of 12, one month rotation blocks. Rotations are available in many areas of specialization to offer experience in the provision of direct patient care. Additionally longitudinal rotations are used for continual focus in key areas including drug information, health system management, and pharmacy operations, and the schedule allows for up to five months of elective rotations.
