Overview

Overview

The Cleveland Clinic Marymount Hospital Pharmacy Residency (PGY1) is one year postgraduate training program that builds upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education. It provides residents with foundational knowledge in pharmacotherapy, operations and practice management. Graduate PGY1 pharmacists are well qualified practitioners who are able to care for a variety of patient complexities, are eligible for board certification, and are able to continue on to specialized postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.

Areas of focus include internal medicine, drug information, critical care, ambulatory care, administration and pharmacy practice. Residents will gain teaching experience while precepting advanced practice pharmacy students and providing education to the clinical staff.

Residents will have the opportunity to perfect formal and informal presentation skills through the following:

  • Bimonthly journal clubs
  • Bimonthly case presentations
  • Continuing education
  • Drug utilization evaluations at Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee
  • Community service outreach
  • Professional meetings: Ohio Pharmacy Residency Conference, ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Ohio College of Clinical Pharmacy

Original research is completed under the guidance of a qualified preceptor. The Marymount residency advisory committee tailors the residency to meet the needs and interests of the resident.

Department of Pharmacy

The hospital campus includes the critical care tower, surgery center, medical office building and behavioral health center. The pharmacy department employs approximately 20 pharmacists and clinical specialists. The department operates 24 hours per day.
