PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Residency

Program Description

The University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy offers three comprehensive postgraduate experiences for residency training with its PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Residency program in Oxford and Jackson. This program provides residents with the knowledge and skills to become successful practitioners in both the community and academic settings. Program graduates will have the clinical competence and skills necessary to manage a community pharmacy practice, counsel and evaluate patients, teach students, and provide pharmaceutical care services.

Additional opportunities for both sites include working with the Mississippi Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network, or CPESN, participating in advocacy efforts, and engaging with the local community. Residents are also an integral participant in the development of student learning and curriculum implementation at the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy.

Oxford Resident

The Oxford site includes the opportunity to practice in innovative community-based practices and a private physician and wellness clinic. Based in Holly Springs, you have a unique opportunity to experience small-town pharmacy interactions while also experiencing how to impact your community and beyond at the innovative powerhouse Tyson Drug Company.

Jackson Residents

With two residents, the Jackson site includes the opportunity to practice in innovative community-based practices, specialty pharmacy, multiple clinic settings, teleinsulin services and the Jackson Free Clinic. Based on the school’s University of Mississippi Medical Center campus, residents experience the state’s only academic medical center as well as chain and independent practices in Walgreens and HealthPlus Pharmacy and Wellness.
