PGY-1 Opportunity

Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

The PGY1 Community Pharmacy Residency through Walgreens and Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is located in Louisville, KY and is a unique opportunity for postgraduate training. Residents enhance their skill sets in various environments, including but not limited to: specialty pharmacy, community pharmacy, ambulatory care, and teaching settings. Participants will be actively involved in the community by working with partner organizations such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and KY Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA). Residents will manage unique disease states at the specialty pharmacy, including HIV, Hepatitis C, oncology, and organ transplant.

The resident will also obtain a teaching certificate and have the opportunity to teach through Sullivan University.  Elective opportunities allow the program to be tailored to the Resident’s specific career goals and interests. Previous residents have pursued an array of opportunities following graduation, including PGY2 ambulatory care residency, management roles, specialty pharmacy roles, health system clinical roles, and community pharmacy roles.  This program has received full accreditation from ASHP and APhA.
