The PGY1 residency is composed of four major elements: Patient Care Advancing Practice and Improving Patient Care Leadership and Management Teaching, Education, and Dissemination of Knowledge Multiple-Site Residency Program St. Elizabeth Healthcare is proud to offer the only multiple-site residency program in the region! We currently operate six hospitals throughout Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana – Covington, Dearborn, Edgewood, Florence, Ft. Thomas and Grant. Residents participate in patient care at the Dearborn, Edgewood, Florence, and Ft. Thomas facilities, which are all within 15-30 minutes of each other. Each of these St. Elizabeth Healthcare Inpatient Pharmacies follow the same organizational policies and procedures. The PGY1 Residency Program has a total of ten pharmacy residents. Each resident is assigned a “home-base” of Dearborn (DBN), Edgewood (EDG), Florence (FLO), or Fort Thomas (FTT). Dearborn supports two residents, Edgewood supports six residents, Fort Thomas supports one resident, and Florence supports one resident during the residency year. Residents will complete the following experiences at their home-base: Orientation, Research & Practice Advancement, Longitudinal Pharmacy Staffing, and portions of Administration. The remainder of the residency year is spent rotating through the various sites dependent upon on the rotation being completed. Since St. Elizabeth Healthcare’s hospitals operate in two states, our program offers two unique match numbers. The first match number is assigned to the 8 Kentucky-based (EDG, FLO, FTT) residency positions; the second match number is assigned to the 2 Indiana-based (DBN) positions. Kentucky-based residents must be licensed pharmacists in the State of Kentucky. Indiana-based residents must be licensed pharmacists in the State of Indiana and Kentucky. Candidates are encouraged to apply to both match numbers and then rank (or not rank) them according to their own personal preference of St. Elizabeth home-base. The multiple-site residency program structure provides residents with the opportunity to become more well-rounded practitioners through experience practicing pharmacy in both academic and community hospital settings. Residents receive individualized training and attention, while learning in an environment with a variety of patient demographics and disease states. Precepting Philosophy Team-based precepting is an innovative learning model based on the premise of collaborative mentoring. In this model, a primary preceptor works together with several other qualified pharmacists to provide quality rotation experiences for PGY1 residents. These interactions provide opportunities for coaching and facilitating personal and professional growth for residents. Program Structure The structure of the residency program at St. Elizabeth is based around monthly learning experiences (rotations). Staffing experiences will occur on the weekends with residency specific activities occurring Monday through Friday. The typical resident schedule is Monday through Friday and every other weekend. Rotations St. Elizabeth’s PGY1 program offers a selection of diverse patient care rotations, allowing for the flexibility to pursue individual goals. During each rotation, the resident is expected to perform independently and demonstrate an increasing proficiency in pharmacy practice. The resident will develop critical thinking skills, while monitoring patient progress and medication therapy.

The purpose of this requirement is to introduce the resident to the principles of scientific method including the design, preparation, performance and interpretation of a medical project. The resident also gains experience in the preparation of a manuscript for publication and improves his/her public speaking skills through formal presentation. Teaching Certificate Program Though not a program requirement, residents have the opportunity to participate in the Teaching Certificate Program (TCP) affiliated with the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy (University of Cincinnati). Residents participate in formal seminars on precepting philosophy and technique, teaching experiences at the college of pharmacy and the development of a teaching portfolio program. This program will allow the resident to gain a broad understanding of issues in pharmacy education and opportunities to practice their teaching skills.
