PGY-1 Community Pharmacy Residency

The Reason for Residency

The transition from college to the workforce brings a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Tarrytown residents will get the unique opportunity to hone their community pharmacy skills, while also receiving an exclusive look into what it takes to run a progressive independent pharmacy. We believe each resident will gain invaluable knowledge, skills, and guidance to further their career.

The Tarrytown Residency

  • Provides residents an excellent, year-long, learning environment to enrich their pharmacy practice skills, in a progressive, quick-moving, and rewarding pharmacy culture
  • Maintains a rewarding partnership with a top-tier University and College of Pharmacy (The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy)

Pharmacy Management and Service

Preparing residents for a successful start as a community pharmacist, is at the heart of the program. Residents will learn pharmacy workflow, team management, pharmacist practice skills, and superb patient service.
