We are proud to announce that the University of Virginia PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program has been selected as the 2017 recipient of the ASHP Foundation Residency Excellence Program Award 

Mission: The UVa Department of Pharmacy Services will provide superlative patient centered care focused on safe medication practices and innovative education and training.

Department of Pharmacy

The University of Virginia Health System consists of the Medical Center and approximately 50 acquired practice sites. The Medical Center is a 600-bed facility serving a primarily rural population in Central Virginia. It features an electronic medical record, computerized physician order entry, barcode medication administration, extensive ambulatory care services, a level one trauma center, an organ transplant program, regional burn and spinal cord injury centers, and other innovative health services. The Department of Pharmacy Services provides decentralized dispensing and clinical services. It has extensive automation, technology, and a state-of-the-art IV clean room. The Department operates pharmacist-run outpatient clinics and an outpatient dispensing pharmacy. In addition, the Department has 9 ASHP-accredited residency programs and serves as a training site for the experiential education of pharmacy students from Virginia Schools of Pharmacy.

General Residency Information

The University of Virginia Health System has supported post-graduate pharmacy education since 1991 when the PGY1 Pharmacy residency was first accredited by ASHP. Since that time, the following PGY2 Residencies have been established: Drug Information (1998), Critical Care (2002), Health System Pharmacy Administration (2010), Oncology (2011), Pharmacy Informatics (2011), Solid Organ Transplant (2013), Infectious Diseases (2015), Pediatrics (2015), Cardiology (2017), and PGY1 Community (2017).  All  programs are ASHP-accredited or in the accreditation process.

Under the guidance of our clinical and administrative staff, residents are involved in clinical, medication use policy, and practice management activities.  Project, service, and teaching opportunities are longitudinal.  Residents are integrated into multidisciplinary patient care teams to optimize pharmacotherapy plans.  This unique and tailored experience will build a foundation for the residents to provide a high level of clinical pharmacy practice.
