Winchester Medical Center Pharmacy Residency Program

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is conducted by Winchester Medical Center in Winchester, Virginia. The mission of the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Winchester Medical Center is to enable residents to become independent practitioners and to be confident in practicing in a variety of health care settings. The emphasis of this residency is on the impact of pharmacists and pharmacy leadership on patient care in the hospital setting through a multidisciplinary approach. Residents gain an appreciation for providing community service and the importance of providing education to patients and health care professionals. With our affiliation with Shenandoah University, the residents are able to participate in a teaching certificate program to gain experience in lecturing and precepting pharmacy students. Additional opportunities for direct patient care in the ambulatory care setting and at one of our sister hospitals, Warren Memorial Hospital, are available.
