CHI Health offers both a PGY1 and PGY2 pharmacy residency program.
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.
CHI Health Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Practice Residency Programs offer a competitive stipend and additional benefits. Please consult with the Residency Director for more information and details.

The Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) program at CHI Health is specifically designed for pharmacists who wish to build upon PGY1 leadership and administrative experiences in order to further develop skills and experience in operational, clinical, financial and human resources management. The program develops pharmacy leaders by providing organized learning experiences across multiple practice settings of the pharmacy enterprise. Professional skill refinement in the areas of communication, critical thinking, and time management are a focus.
The resident will gain experience and competency in a wide range of pharmacy practice management including: medication use policy, medication safety, clinical and operational leadership, finance, human resources, strategic planning, process improvement, and project management. The program offers the resident the opportunity to develop, to the highest degree obtainable, professional expertise as a practitioner and leader. Graduates of this program will be qualified for leadership positions across the pharmacy enterprise.
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
