Pharmacy Rotations & Electives

Incoming pharmacy residents will meet with the program director and coordinator to develop a customized plan and schedule of rotations for the program year. Each resident will actively participate in the development of his or her residency plan. 

Residency experiences are a combination of rotational, longitudinal, and annual experiences. 

All residents are expected to complete a longitudinal project, present a poster at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting and a platform presentation at the New York State Council of Health-system Pharmacists (NYSCHP) Annual Assembly.
