PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency Program
The Baptist Health Lexington's Residency Program was established July 2010. After graduating the first class of Residents, ASHP has fully awarded accreditation to the program.
Baptist Health Lexington's foremost priority is to develop the knowledge and skills of Residents to ensure that they will be well-rounded, confident medical professionals. This is achieved through various experiences throughout the Residency Program which will be designed specifically for each Resident.
The core rotations are designed to give the Resident a broad understanding of clinical pharmacy, and the elective rotations allow each Resident to excel in their various areas of interest as well as expand their collaboration with the medical team. As part of the clinical development, residents will regularly design and implement new policies and procedures via the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee as well as the Medication Safety Committee
A variety of longitudinal experiences will provide the opportunity to develop, implement, assess, and publish a research project and also to design a publish a monthly pharmacy newsletter. Additionally the resident will be able to broaden their precepting and teaching abilities with the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Program offered through the University of Kentucky.
