Pharmacy Residency Program

Pharmacy Residency Program

We are excited to provide you with information about our residency program. As you navigate through our website, I hope you find that Baptist Medical Center South is a progressive organization that offers virtually unlimited opportunities as we strive to fulfill our mission in Central Alabama.

Program Purpose

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy 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. 

Program Mission Statement

Baptist Medical Center South PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program is committed to providing residents with diverse training opportunities within an enriched clinical environment.  The resident’s training will be tailored to encourage the development of both clinical and leadership skills that will produce competent and confident practitioners equipped to practice anywhere along the spectrum of opportunity that the profession of pharmacy provides.  The diverse patient population and team dynamics at our institution also allow the resident to gain experience and prepare for further training in a PGY2 discipline upon graduation. Our goal will be to allow for the development of a professional maturity that not only promotes the profession of pharmacy but also encourages a mentality of service.
