Postgraduate Year One Pharmacy Practice Residency
NYU Langone Health’s postgraduate year one (PGY-1) Pharmacy Practice Residency at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island is a one-year postgraduate program that provides an institutional practice environment in which pharmacists develop expertise in the provision of pharmaceutical care.
Our program builds on and enhances the academic training provided by doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) programs, enabling residents to practice and gain knowledge of patient care through didactics, conferences, and practical experience.
Pharmacy practice residents provide pharmaceutical care to the hospital’s diverse population, including those in an intensive care unit (ICU). Additionally, residents are responsible for providing drug information to patients, clinicians, and other staff members, as well as co-precepting pharmacy students.
