PGY1 Residency (ASHP-accredited)

The ASHP-accredited Eskenazi Health PGY1 Pharmacy Residency in Indianapolis, IN, is defined as organized, directed, postgraduate training in general pharmacotherapy. The program focuses on the development of knowledge, skills and behaviors required for the successful provision of pharmaceutical care in the ambulatory and inpatient settings. The purpose of the Eskenazi Health PGY1 Residency Program is to prepare individuals to enter specialty residency or general clinical practice as a member of an integrated health care team focused on achieving optimal outcomes associated with medication use.

Upon successful completion of the Eskenazi Health PGY1 Pharmacy Residency, the resident shall competently be able to:

  • Provide patient-specific pharmaceutical care in the ambulatory and inpatient settings
  • Educate patients, students, and health care professionals
  • Apply the skills of continuous quality improvement to improve the medication use process
  • Demonstrate behaviors consistent with self-improvement and lifelong learning
  • Demonstrate practice skills consistent with competent pharmacists



As Eskenazi Health will be moving to the new facility during the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, Eskenazi Health will not be attending the ASHP Residency Showcase in 2013.  Please contact the residency program director or any of the current residents listed below if you have additional questions about the Eskenazi Health PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency.  We look forward to hearing from you!
