Residency Programs

Residency Programs at the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy first formed as one-year academic and research fellowships to prepare pharmacists in practice for careers in academia and eventually expanded into PGY1 programs in community and pharmacy practice setting with all programs now being accredited through the American Society of Health System Pharmacists and the American Pharmacist Association.

Residency Programs at the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy seek to address changes in the pharmacy profession, further educate student pharmacists and better facilitate the transition to licensed pharmacist, and offer unique clinical experiences with experienced practitioners and faculty.

Through a variety of PGY1 and PGY2 experiences in community, ambulatory, and acute care, preceptors and program directors prepare the residents in the program to advance the profession of pharmacy by:

  • Serving as role models in advanced areas of practice to which they aspire
  • Training and challenging them to improve patient care through exposure to inter-professional advanced practice
  • Mentoring through teaching experiences to educate pharmacy students in the future
  • Directing research projects that will enable them to contribute to the professional literature
  • Incentivizing them to further their own education and training to pursue PGY2 experiences, and/or to secure future academic or clinical practice positions
