NEA Baptist Pharmacy Residency Program

The PGY1 pharmacy residency program at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital is comprised of the following major elements: direct patient care, teaching/precepting, staffing, medication safety and optimization, pharmacy administration, and pharmacy practice based research. The goal of this program is to provide the resident with a variety of high-quality learning experiences and opportunities to enhance clinical and leadership sills of a pharmacist in a community-based hospital.

In accordance with ASHP guidelines, the residency program at NEA Baptist functions under the following purpose:

Build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives. Residents who successfully complete PGY1 residency programs will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education, and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e., BCPS), and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.

Residents are provided the opportunity to train alongside clinical pharmacy preceptors who have expansive educational backgrounds and diverse experiences to enrich their learning and hands-on experiences.

Residents select a professional mentor from the preceptor group. Mentors assist the resident with establishing a plan for the year based on career goals, previous clinical experiences, strengths, and areas for growth and progression throughout the year. The mentor is available to help guide the resident as needed throughout the resident year relating to projects, presentations or career choices.
