Pharmacy Residency Goals

The Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center and the Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Long Island University, offer a one-year ASHP-accredited Pharmacy Residency (PGY-1) Program. The primary goals of this residency program are to develop, hone, and maximize the resident’s pharmacotherapy skills, and to develop basic competencies in teaching, lecturing, presenting, writing, and publishing. The resident will receive comprehensive, intense, and individualized training in all aspects of pharmacy practice from dedicated, passionate, and expert pharmacy faculty.

Position Description

The resident will be responsible for providing comprehensive medication therapy management for patients in the following settings: acute care, emergency medicine, critical care (medical, surgical, and cardiac), surgery, cardiac-, neurologic-, and orthopedic-rehabilitation, long-term care, psychiatry, neurology, and a variety of ambulatory care clinics. The resident will perform pharmacotherapy and pharmacokinetic consultations, and approve restricted antimicrobials.

He/she will intensely participate in medication use evaluations, quality assurance reports, adverse drug event and medication error reporting. The resident will perform admission histories and medication reconciliation, and drug discharge counseling. The resident will receive BCLS and ACLS training and certification, and participate in codes. There is a faculty appointment with the Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Long Island University.

Residency Research Project and Publishing Requirements

The resident is required to complete one scholarly pharmacy practice project for poster presentation and publication. The resident will prepare an abstract and poster for both state and national presentation, usually in the form of a drug-induced adverse effect or a research project.

Qualifications

In order to apply for this ASHP-accredited pharmacy residency program (PGY-1), you must be a graduate of an ACPE-accredited college of pharmacy, and you should possess a Pharm.D. degree, or a Post-BS Pharm.D. degree or equivalent experience. Pharmacy licensure or eligibility for licensure in NY State is required.
