PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program


Welcome from the Program Director!

Lahey Hospital & Medical Center's PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program provides a diverse, challenging training experience for individuals seeking accelerated professional growth. Emphasis is on development of skills involving optimization of medication therapy outcomes through use of evidence-based medicine. Residency training is designed around the ASHP's (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) Residency Learning System model. Teaching skills are developed on-site and through opportunities at Northeastern University School of Pharmacy and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University in Boston. The resident will have an opportunity to obtain a teaching certificate. In addition, a multidisciplinary collaborative research project is conducted and presented at the Eastern States Regional Residency Conference. Emphasis is on progressive development of judgment and professional competence.

Upon successful completion of the program, the resident will be qualified to obtain a clinically-oriented position or pursue further post-graduate training. Please view our application requirements and email me with any questions you may have. Thank you for your inquiry into our program.
