About Our Program
Each year, Meriter Hospital seeks qualified candidates for our PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency. The Meriter Hospital PGY1 Residency is a one-year, full-time, post-graduate experience accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The goal of the program is to guide the Resident in developing advanced knowledge and skills in clinical areas of contemporary pharmacy practice and in providing comprehensive pharmaceutical care. The Resident will apply this expertise in a community hospital setting.
The PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency has two main objectives:
1. Provide the Resident with a broad scope of in-depth experiences that will:
Lead to an advanced level of knowledge and pharmacy practice skills
Enhance the Resident's ability to design, implement and improve clinical pharmacy services
Increase the Resident's experiential and didactic teaching skills
2. Develop competent clinicians who:
Have an understanding of the concepts used in rational drug therapy
Have the ability to utilize and expand their expertise in clinical pharmacy practice, education and research
Provide comprehensive pharmaceutical care to diverse populations of patients
Meeting these goals and objectives will be facilitated by:
Working with a variety of experienced preceptors in core and elective clinical pharmacy rotations
Actively participating in the pharmaceutical care of patients affiliated with our institution
Participating in interdisciplinary clinical practice
Exercising independent motivation and initiative
Co-precepting doctor of pharmacy students
Teaching pharmacy students from the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy in their pharmacotherapy labs

The Residency Experience The Meriter Pharmacy Practice Residency allows significant flexibility for Residents to individualize their training to meet their own specific clinical needs.
Preceptors Residency preceptors are actively involved in educational programs and endeavors at Meriter Hospital. Further, many members of the department are engaged in scholarly activities and participate regularly in professional organizations at regional, state and national levels. A teaching affiliation with the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy enhances the academic opportunities of clinical pharmacy training.
Staffing (Service Commitment) Due to the intrinsic role of pharmacy practice in pharmaceutical care, the residency experience will include weekend staffing. The staffing schedule will be approximately every other weekend (20 hours staffed, which includes some evening shift time). The sites of staffing will include decentralized unit coverage, specialty service coverage once trained in those areas, and possibly limited central pharmacy coverage. In addition, the Resident may provide patient care on assigned units as part of a scheduled rotation.
Certificate The Resident will be awarded a Residency Program Certificate upon successful completion of the goals for the program.
