Pharmacy Residency Programs

Since 1970, UAB has offered an ASHP-accredited (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) PGY1 residency in pharmacy practice. Fifty-two weeks long, the program inspires, builds confidence, and prepares pharmacists for the challenging world of modern medicine. The comprehensive program includes orientation, required rotations, elective rotations, practice coverage, and a residency project.

We also offer a variety of specialized training opportunities in our PGY2 program, including residencies in oncology, solid organ transplant, infectious diseases, and critical care. Each is a one-year program that provides our residents intensive real-world experience under the leadership of some of the top professionals in their fields.
