The UofL Health - Jewish Hospital PGY1 Residency Program provides a comprehensive training environment by delivering pharmaceutical services in a large community based hospital practice. The program is designed to give the resident a breadth of experiences to include direct patient care, project management, distributive operations and drug information/literature search and evaluation along with promoting scholarly endeavors. By the conclusion of the residency year, the trainee will have acquired the confidence to be an independent practitioner in the many facets of general pharmacy practice.
The program is designed to provide direct patient care experiences typical of a large community based hospital setting. Required learning experiences are selected in a sequence to provide the resident an opportunity to be a competitive candidate for a specialized PGY2, if desired.

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Certificate Program – Residents will participate in the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Certificate Program that is offered via video teleconference. The Sullivan University College of Pharmacy Teaching Certificate Program was created to provide an opportunity for pharmacy professionals to expand and refine their teaching skills. Our program is designed to meet the diverse needs of pharmacists teaching students, residents, other health care professionals, peers and patients in both the experiential and didactic settings.
Participants in our program will attend an educational seminar focusing on small group and experiential skills that are applicable to a wide variety of pharmacy settings. There will also be additional (a la carte) seminars for those participants who desire more training in the “traditional” didactic aspects of pharmacy education. Participants will receive individualized mentoring and will experience a variety of teaching opportunities to apply knowledge and skills gained during the educational seminars. Teaching experiences and growth in teaching skills will be documented in the participant’s teaching portfolio. Upon successful completion of the program, the participant will receive a certificate.
Residents will also have the opportunity to interact with APPE students from the University of Kentucky and Sullivan College of Pharmacy. This will provide the resident an opportunity to develop their preceptor skills.
