Pharmacy residency program

Thank you for visiting the NCH Healthcare System Postgraduate Year One (PGY-1) Pharmacy Residency website! We welcome the opportunity to introduce you to our program.

NCH Healthcare System is a non-profit organization in Naples, Florida comprised of multiple outpatient physician groups, urgent care centers, free-standing emergency departments and 716 beds between our two acute care community hospitals.

Our residency program began in July 2017. We have been given full   accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Each year, we recruit two PGY1 Pharmacy residents. The residents join our dynamic pharmacy department and have the opportunity to work alongside the NCH Internal Medicine physician residents, as well as students from various healthcare disciplines.

Pharmacy Residency Program

The postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency program builds on the 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.

Additionally, the resident will be mentored in the development of pharmacy leadership skills that will serve the graduate well in a variety of integrated health care systems. It is the overarching goal of the program for the graduate to be successful in multiple practice environments or build upon their foundation and enroll in advanced training programs.
