NGMC Pharmacy Residency

Welcome to the NGMC PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency

Northeast Georgia Medical Center has offered a patient-centered, highly structured, ASHP- accredited pharmacy residency program since 2004. The program is designed to build upon the knowledge and skills gained from the Doctor of Pharmacy degree, offering a wide range of learning experiences and expert level preceptors who support, guide, and challenge the resident to continuously improve, practice independently and advance the profession.

During the 12 months of training, the pharmacy resident is actively involved in optimizing medication therapy, serving on multidisciplinary care teams, conducting practice-based research and building leadership skills. We take pride in tailoring each resident’s training plan to meet their personal goals and those required by ASHP. The program prepares the resident for a Health-System Pharmacist Position, PGY-2 Residency Program and/or Board Certification.
