About our pharmacy residency programs
Postgraduate Year 1 (PGY-1) Pharmacy Residency Program
The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Children's Colorado is a 12-month program that trains residents to be confident, highly skilled clinical pharmacy experts. Our residency provides valuable training in the various aspects of pharmacotherapy and pediatrics through a customizable program.
The PGY1 Residency Program builds upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals and objectives. Residents who successfully complete our program will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership and education, and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e., BCPS) and pursue advanced education and training opportunities, including postgraduate year two (PGY-2) residencies.
Our diverse program provides residents with an unparalleled educational experience, transforming them into authoritative resources and experts in the application, administration, research and innovation of pharmacotherapy.
The PGY-1 residency program is offered at our hospitals on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora and in Colorado Springs. Individual applications are required for each program.
