Residency (PGY1 and PGY2) and Fellowship Programs
The pharmacy practice residency
program provides training in overall delivery of healthcare with a
major emphasis placed on drug-related issues and prac-tices. During
this one-year program, the resident effectively makes the transition
from student to independent practitioner under guidance from the
clinical faculty. The program also serves to prepare well those
planning further specialized training.
The program’s main goals are to:
• develop competent clinical pharmacists capable of practicing in any setting;
• provide exposure to a diverse scope of pharma- ceutical care services;
• foster leaders in clinical pharmacy practice and education.
There are ample opportunities at UIC for specialized
training after completing a pharmacy practice residency. To further the
residents’ clinical abilities, UIC offers one-year specialized
residencies in critical care, drug information, HIV, primary care,
pediatrics, transplant, cardiology, emergency medicine, and
oncology. In addition, UIC has two-year research fellowships in
cardiology, drug development, PK/PD/PG, infectious disease, natural
products, nephrology, neurology, transplant, and pharmacoeconomics/
