College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences Residency Programs

Thank you for visiting the residency website for the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences! We offer a variety of residency programs to assist you in meeting your personal and professional goals.

Sullivan offers two different traditional PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency programs. The Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences resident is based at the university and rotates through various clinical sites. The other track is affiliated with St. Matthews Community Pharmacy. This resident spends time at both sites. In addition, we have also partnered with Walgreens Pharmacy to offer a PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Residency. Lastly, beginning in 2021, Sullivan began partnering with Baptist Health to support a PGY-2 program in ambulatory care.

Rotation experiences offered at the primary residency site are complemented by longitudinal experiences and monthly rotations with many of the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Clinical and Administrative Sciences faculty. All residency programs are fully accredited by the ASHP.

PGY-1 Opportunities

Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (SUCOPHS) is proud to offer two traditional PGY-1 residencies: one based at SU COPHS and one based at St. Matthews Community Pharmacy. These programs have an emphasis on ambulatory care and academia and will each accept 1 resident per year. One resident will practice primarily with academic-based clinical faculty at SUCOPHS. The second position will be stationed at the St. Matthews Community Pharmacy. The St. Matthews resident’s experience emphasizes independent community pharmacy practice, and he/she will also have longitudinal experiences with faculty. This will be customized to the resident’s career interests/goals. Both residency programs are accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists.

Community Pharmacy PGY1, Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy

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.
