Lehigh Valley Health Network's (LVHN) pharmacy residency program will equip you with the clinical and professional skills needed to provide comprehensive pharmaceutical services in a patient-focused health care setting. Our postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency program prepares you for clinical or teaching positions, or for postgraduate year two (PGY2) training in a community hospital setting.
The 12-month program provides well-rounded training experience, offering you the opportunity to further develop clinical and leadership skills and explore the many facets of hospital pharmacy practice. The program is flexible, ensuring your particular areas of interest are incorporated into your experience.
At LVHN you’ll engage in a variety of patient care activities with the support of state-of-the-art pharmaceutical technologies, including a dispensing robot, automated dispensing cabinets, as well as a fully integrated electronic medical record with bedside barcoding.
Following completion of PGY1 training at LVHN, our residents have continued on to clinical positions, and many have continued their careers right here at LVHN. In addition, numerous residents have pursued PGY2 training in specialties such as ambulatory care, HIV, oncology, and pediatrics, and, after successful completion of these programs, have accepted clinical specialist positions. Past residents also hold adjunct faculty positions at schools of pharmacy, medical schools and universities.
