About Mountainside Medical Center PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency
- The pharmacy department, medical staff & administration at Mountainside Medical Center recognize the value and need for residency training in preparing individuals for careers in clinical pharmacy practice.
- Our 12-month ASHP-accredited program will provide a well-rounded training experience, offering you the opportunity to further develop your clinical and leadership skills while exploring the many facets of hospital pharmacy practice.
- Over the course of the residency year, you’ll engage in a variety of patient care rotational experiences with opportunities for patient care interactions, as well as with various medical team members via multidisciplinary rounds.
- During your experiences you will have the benefit of being supported by state-of-the-art pharmaceutical technologies, including automated dispensing cabinets & a fully integrated electronic medical record (EPIC) with bedside barcoding. In addition, our clinical pharmacy specialists serving as preceptors have robust experience, many having also completed a residency themselves, as well as having Family & Internal Med Medical Residents, thus fostering a supportive learning environment.
- Ultimately, the primary goal of our residency program is to provide our resident(s) with practical clinical training, as well as exposure to the research & administrative aspects of pharmacy practice. This will allow our resident(s) to build medication management skills & optimize the role of the pharmacist in patient-centered care.
The purpose of the HackensackUMC Mountainside Medical Center’s Post-Graduate Year One (PGY-1) pharmacy residency program is to build on your Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.”
