The PGY1 Residency at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances is a one-year postdoctoral training program designed to enhance and strengthen the resident’s clinical skills and knowledge of the practice of pharmacy. The resident gains practice experience in direct patient care by working independently under the direction of his/her preceptor and participating in team-based interdisciplinary care in various areas of the hospital. The resident also works with a research mentor to develop a project to be presented at a regional or national pharmacy conference. High priority is placed on teaching principles of evidence-based care, and patient safety considerations are also emphasized throughout the program. The ultimate outcome of our PGY-1 program is to produce well-rounded generalist clinicians capable of independent clinical pharmacy practice in a health system setting and/or preparation for PGY-2 specialty training.
