Program Description

The PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Residency at Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC) is an ASHP accredited program designed to provide a solid foundation in acute patient care, pharmacy administration, and professional leadership. The residency program helps pharmacy residents build the skills required for providing contemporary pharmaceutical care in a diverse population of patients. 

Residents will gain experience in comprehensive pharmacy services and will be granted prescribing privileges under physician driven protocols in various areas of inpatient care including parenteral nutrition, anticoagulation, and infectious disease.  In addition, the resident will gain valuable experience in pharmacy administration by actively participating in projects such as policy development, medication use evaluation,  medication safety implementation, adverse drug event reporting, and committee involvement.   Residents will also have teaching  opportunities among pharmacy students, pharmacists, nursing and physicians.

Our residency program is tailored for the individual and emphasizes development of advanced pharmaceutical care skills.  After orientation to the department, the resident begins a series of 4-6 week rotation blocks and other longitudinal learning experiences  designed to meet the goals and objectives of an ASHP accredited, pharmacy residency program.
