PGY1 Pharmacy Residency


The ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at the University of New Mexico Hospital is designed to provide the resident with training and experience in various areas of clinical practice, research, and teaching. The program maintains a close association with the University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy and thus is able to provide a unique one-year residency that can be tailored to meet the interests of each resident.  Post Graduate Pharmacy Residency Brochure.
