Residency Program Resources

History

Our Pharmacy Practice residency program was first accredited by ASHP in 1988. Our PGY1 and PGY2 programs have been re-accredited in recent years. We are proud of the contributions that almost 100 BMC residency graduates have made to advance the profession of pharmacy through patient care, scholarship, and leadership in their professional careers.
