Pharmacy Residency Programs
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Cone Health's Pharmacy Residency Programs! In 1968, Moses Cone Hospital enrolled one resident in its first residency training class and the legacy continues today! Currently, the Cone Health Pharmacy Residency Programs have expanded to 17 residents across both PGY1 and PGY2 programs and remains one of the region’s premier training programs. Not only do our residents provide excellent patient care on a daily basis, but they are integral to the growth of our department and our goal of providing contemporary pharmacy care for the future. Our past residents have gone on to work in a variety of roles across the country and continue to give back to the profession through publications, presentations, precepting, and more! We hope you will consider joining our exceptional team!
Pharmacy residency programs build on the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists. Residency-trained clinical pharmacists are responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for further education and leadership positions in pharmacy.
