Pharmacy Residency Program

Baton Rouge General’s Pharmacy Residency Program is a yearlong PGY1 pharmacy residency training for pharmacists that builds on the PharmD degree program and provides residents experience in different pharmaceutical settings, including hospital pharmacy practice and ambulatory care pharmacy practice. Once completing the program, residents will be eligible for board certification and to continue education in a PGY2 specialty pharmacy residency program.

The Pharmacy Residency Program is Baton Rouge General's newest medical educational program and will be seeking accreditation after the first residency year. Baton Rouge General has been a teaching hospital since 1991. With several campuses and the opportunity to treat patients of all ages, medical conditions and varying socioeconomic backgrounds, our health system provides an ideal setting for aspiring pharmacists, doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals.

Applications for the Pharmacy Residency Program are now being accepted through January 7.
