Organized and directed pharmacy training in an academic and community hospital setting.

Pharmacy Residency

Purpose Statement

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 postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

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.
