NYU Winthrop Hospital’s PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program is a 12-month post-graduate program designed to provide an institutional practice environment for graduate pharmacists to develop expertise in the provision of pharmaceutical care. The program is designed to accommodate the training needs of Doctor of Pharmacy graduates to supplement their academic training and enable them to practice, and gain more knowledge and practical experience in patient care. There are nine pharmacy resident positions available for the upcoming residency year. The pharmacy residents will provide pharmaceutical care to the hospital’s diverse population. Additionally, the residents will be responsible for providing drug information to patients, clinicians and other staff members as well as co-precepting pharmacy students.
