Introduction

Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) at University of the Sciences in Philadelphia (USciences) in conjunction with Cooper University Hospital offers a one-year PGY1 Pharmacy Residency.  The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at PCP is designed to provide the opportunity to accelerate growth in direct patient care and in practice management beyond entry-level professional competence and to further the development of leadership skills that can be applied in any position and in any practice setting. PGY1 Pharmacy residents acquire substantial knowledge required for skillful problem solving, refine their problem-solving strategies, strengthen their professional values and attitudes, and advance the growth of their clinical judgment. The emphasis in training is on the progressive development of clinical judgment, a process begun in the clerkships of the professional school years but requiring further extensive practice, self-reflection, and shaping of decision-making skills based on feedback on performance. The residency year provides a fertile environment for accelerating growth beyond entry-level professional competence through supervised practice under the guidance of model practitioners. Similarly, the residency year provides a fertile environment for accelerating the growth of residents’ leadership skills.

The Goals and Objectivesof the program are those of the ASHP-accredited Pharmacy Residency program.
