The Residency in Pharmacy (PGY1) at the University of Washington is an ASHP-accredited post-graduate multiple-site program (UWMC/HMC and Northwest), which provides twelve months of training in all aspects of advanced pharmacy practice: acute patient care, ambulatory patient care, drug information, drug policy development, and practice management. The goal of the program is to provide specific skills and competencies to the resident that are needed to assume leadership roles within the profession. Upon completion of the PGY1 program, residents are equipped to succeed in a variety of positions including clinical pharmacist specialists, clinical faculty, or continuation of postgraduate training in a PGY2 program or fellowship.

Residents select clinical rotations to meet their individual goals and interests from a wide range of inpatient and ambulatory clinic sites.  Residents gain experience in various areas of advanced pharmacy practice by working with nationally recognized pharmacy practitioners. In addition, residents develop a clinical service or research project designed to improve pharmaceutical care, and participate in teaching in the University of Washington School of Pharmacy. Residents have an integrated service commitment and work 32 hours per month in a distributive role.
