Our Residency Program’s Mission

Our PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds on PharmD education and outcomes to contribute to the development of a clinical pharmacist responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

What makes our program unique?

  • Our program provides a close-knit, supportive training environment while also being connected to a large healthcare system where residents have the opportunity to complete specialized elective rotations at other Hartford HealthCare residency programs.
  • Residents network and collaborate with their peers within the four Hartford HealthCare residency programs when participating in the UConn Teaching & Learning certificate program and professional development series.
  • Being part of a residency program with two residents offers more individual attention, mentoring, and flexibility.
  • Each resident selects a mentor who advocates for their success, facilitates communication among preceptors, and promotes well-being.
  • Residents have many opportunities to gain experience precepting pharmacy students and teaching lectures at local schools of pharmacy.
  • We have an excellent team of enthusiastic and experienced preceptors with specialists in multiple areas of the hospital who deliver robust learning experiences.
  • Residents complete a research project with the support of a dedicated mentor and a statistician to help them successfully design and conduct a high-quality study.
