Our combined PGY1-Community-Based Pharmacy and PGY2 Community-Based Pharmacy Administration
& Leadership Residency Program is offered in collaboration with Premise Health with
a practice site at the Associate Family Health Center in Greer, SC and the Wiggins
Family Medical Center and Pharmacy in Carrollton, GA.
The PGY2 residents will receive pharmacy-specific outcomes research training from
faculty at the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy. The PGY2 year builds
upon the resident’s competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and in pharmacy
operational services to prepare residents who can assume high level managerial, supervisory,
and leadership responsibilities.
Areas of competence emphasized during the program include safe and effective medication-use
systems, quality assurance and improvement, the management of human resources, the
management of financial resources, use of technology, and advanced leadership. The
residency lays the foundation for continued growth in management and leadership skills.
The program is designed to develop a pharmacist who can provide high quality patient
care, manage an innovative pharmacy practice at a local or corporate level, evaluate
the impact of the patient care provided, and advance the profession of pharmacy.
Additionally, residents will participate in pharmacy profession advocacy efforts at
the local, state and national level. Graduates will be prepared for a high level
managerial, supervisory and leadership position that is responsible for developing
and managing an innovative community-based patient care practice within a health care
