Residency Program

Supplementary Information

Required Activities

The resident is required to successfully complete each of the following activities in order to become eligible to complete the residency program.

Research Project

The resident will complete a research project that will be presented at the Eastern States Residency and Preceptors Conference. This project can be of original research, a problem-solving exercise or development, enhancement or evaluation of some aspect of pharmacy services. A publication quality manuscript of the residency project must be submitted to the Residency Director prior to completion of the program.

Formal Patient Case Presentations

PGY-1 and PGY-2 pharmacy residents are required to prepare and present two formal case presentations during their residency. The goal of a case presentation is to discuss the drug therapy of a rare disease state or to discuss a controversial drug therapy issue of a common disease state related to a particular patient case.

Pharmacy Seminars

PGY-1 and PGY-2 pharmacy residents prepare and present one formal ACPE (American Council on Pharmacy Education) accredited pharmacy seminar during the residency year. The goal of the seminar is to expand the resident's communication skills and presentation techniques. The seminar topic will involve a therapeutic or practice management controversy, clinical or practice management research or review of a specific therapeutic area.

Journal Club

PGY-1 and PGY-2 pharmacy residents will present two (PGY-2) or three (PGY-1) formal journal clubs during the residency year. This experience is designed to help residents evaluate and appraise medical literature through the evaluation of statistical methods used, the statistical significance and clinical significance of study results as well as the impact on current and future practice.

Basic Cardiac Life Support (BLS) & Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)

BLS certification is required of all PGY-1 and PGY-2 critical care pharmacy residents. ACLS is optional for PGY-2 Infectious Diseases and Solid Organ Transplantation pharmacy residents.

Adult Cardiopulmonary Arrest Pager

The purpose of this learning experience is to expand the PGY-2 critical care pharmacy resident's learning experience in adult cardiopulmonary arrests outside the intensive care unit (ICU). This is an optional experience for PGY-1 residents.

Resident Discussion Series

The Resident Discussion Series is a forum where residents learn about identified topics of interest in pharmacy practice. These discussions are designed to aid in the professional development of the residents and are scheduled to address timely concerns that the residents will encounter over the residency year.

Subcommittee Involvement

PGY-1 pharmacy residents will attend monthly Formulary and Therapeutics Committee meetings and participate in activities as deemed appropriate. PGY-2 pharmacy residents will join a subcommittee in their specialty area.

Weekend Clinical Coverage

PGY-1 pharmacy residents are expected to be on-site at their assigned institution each day every second weekend. Duties are as follows:

  • Pharmacy Satellite Operations
  • Drug Information Coverage
  • Pharmacokinetic Drug Monitoring

PGY-2 pharmacy residents are expected to be on-site at their assigned institution every other Saturday. Duties will be specific to the program.

Residency Requirements

A limited (Intern) permit or NYS pharmacist license is required prior to the start of the residency. PGY-2 residents who are licensed as a pharmacist in another state do not need a limited (Intern) permit unless their NYS pharmacist license will be delayed.

All residents are required to be licensed as a pharmacist in the state of New York by October 1st. This may be accomplished by primary examination, score transfer or reciprocation.

Residents who fail to pass Part III of the New York State Boards in June, or residents accepted through the post-match will be required to pass the exam in January of the following year and must be licensed in the State of New York by March 31st of their residency year.

Failure to comply with these requirements will result in termination from the residency program and NYP.
