Pharmacy Residency

Hallmark Health System/MCPHS
Postgraduate Year 1 Residency Program


The Hallmark Health System (HHS)/MCPHS University- Boston residency is a structured, 1-year postgraduate educational and training experience that fosters the development of advanced knowledge and skills in the delivery of pharmaceutical services within a community hospital setting. The fundamental goal of the residency is to attract and develop pharmacists whose talents and motivation indicate a strong potential for assuming leadership roles in a community hospital setting.


Pharmacists play an integral role in providing quality health care services to patients and practitioners.  The development of strong communication skills, leadership qualities and experience in diverse health care settings will produce a well-trained and determined pharmacist.  The HHS/MCPHS pharmacy practice residency is constructed to provide the resident with the ability to expand their practice in various areas of pharmaceutical care, academia, and other areas of pharmacy practice in order to develop the skills necessary for a career in clinical pharmacy.


Residents completing the HHS/MCPHS PGY-1 residency will have developed his or her clinical practice skills, time management, and interpersonal communication skills. In addition, the resident will gain experience in academic pharmacy with teaching activities in a variety of settings. The academic training is overseen by experienced faculty and coordinated by the MCPHS School of Pharmacy Residency and Fellowship Committee.  The resident is expected to provide accurate, detailed and quality driven services for each task they complete.  The resident will participate in their own professional development including professional presentations, educational certification(s), in addition to developing their long term career goals.  Upon completion of the residency the resident will be prepared and well qualified to enter into numerous fields of clinical pharmacy practice, including patient care positions, adjunct faculty positions or PGY2 training in particular areas such as informatics, oncology, anticoagulation and pharmacy leadership/administration.
