The PGY1/PGY2 health-system pharmacy administration and leadership residency trains residents in the delivery of patient-centered care and pharmacy operational services to prepare residents who can assume high level supervisory, managerial, and leadership responsibilities. Areas of competence emphasized throughout the program include safe and effective medication-use systems, quality assurance and improvement, management of human resources, management of financial resources, use of technology, and advanced leadership. The residency lays the foundation for continued growth in management and leadership skills. Upon graduation, residents are prepared to assume a variety of health-system pharmacy leadership roles. 


This residency program prepares residents to assume high-level managerial, supervisory, and leadership responsibilities. During the first year of the program, the resident will fulfill PGY1 pharmacy residency program requirements while participating in additional administrative responsibilities. During the second year of the program, the resident will complete rotations and learning experiences that focus on safe and effective medication utilization, operations and clinical management in both inpatient and ambulatory settings, transitions of care, quality assurance, management of human and financial resources, and the use of technology. Projects and longitudinal activities during both years will relate to resident’s interests in pharmacy leadership and administration. When available, interim leader opportunities are highly encouraged and will be tailored to the resident’s skills and interests.  In addition, residents will complete a 2-year Masters of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree in partnership with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UW-M).
