PGY-1 Residency

The overarching goal for North Kansas City Hospital’s Post Graduate Year 1 Pharmacy Residency program is to develop skilled, well-rounded professionals who are either ready to begin practice or enter a PGY-2 program immediately after completing the program. To meet this goal, PGY-1 residents will engage in a flexible and challenging curriculum. Preceptors work with each resident to create an educational experience that supports individual goals. 

Over the course of the year, residents will attend national and local professional meetings, participate in a teaching certificate program offered by the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy, and design/conduct a research project.
