Residency & Fellowship Program

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, PK/PD/PG, infectious disease, transplant, and pharmacoeconomics/ outcomes research.
