Learn more at our web page www.augustahealth.org/pharmacy-residency Augusta University Pharmacy Residency Program graduates are making a difference in a variety of practice settings. Our residents graduate as competent, confident and compassionate pharmacy practitioners who are active members of the health care team and positioned to be leaders in the profession. Augusta University and University of Georgia (UGA) College of Pharmacy preceptors consistently demonstrate commitment to the pharmacy profession and strive to help you develop and market career skills in the changing health care environment. Our history began when we were Medical College of Georgia Hospital (MCG Pharmacy Residency) and our pharmacy program has been ASHP accredited since 1975. UGA College of Pharmacy faculty members have been residency preceptors since the early years. Our nine residents receive a stipend as both full time AU Medical Center employees and UGA graduate students. Augusta University Pharmacy Residency Program is a 12-month ASHP accredited pharmacy residency program. Residents are appointed as graduate teaching assistants for the College of Pharmacy and earn graduate school credit for components of the residency, including clinical pharmacy, teaching and research activities. UGA awards a graduate certificate for successful completion of the residency program. Applicants for the Augusta University Pharmacy Residency Program must be eligible for licensure as a pharmacist in Georgia at the start of the residency. We have six programs, each with competitive entry requirements and benefits:
PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program
PGY1/PGY2 Health System Pharmacy Admin & Leadership (new for '21)
PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency Program
PGY2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency Program
PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency Program
PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program

New Augusta University-UGA agreement can speed up pharmacist education

To paraphrase our UGA COP Dean Kelly Smith and @aug_provost Neil MacKinnon - yet more proof that cats (Augusta University Jaguars) and Dawgs (Georgia Bulldogs at The University of Georgia College of Pharmacy) can be synergistic partners!

This 3+4 program to allow students to earn an undergraduate + PharmD degree adds to the collaboration between our two universities going back 50 years that includes the Augusta campus for UGA's 2+2 Doctor of Pharmacy program and the CET (Clinical & Experimental Therapeutics) Masters/PhD, the Center for Pharmacy and Experimental Therapeutics at the Medical College of Georgia , and Augusta University Pharmacy Residency Programa Program.

#GoJags

A new agreement between Augusta University and the University of Georgia will speed up undergraduates into the pharmacy school.

Year in Review: Augusta University's fight against COVID-19

Wish the whole COVID-19 pandemic was just a bad APRIL FOOLS joke (one year and counting), but a good time to pause and reflect back on the last year in review

It’s been a year since the first six people were tested for the novel coronavirus at Augusta University Health. Since then, Augusta University and AU Health have led the fight across the state of Georgia against the virus and the disease it causes, COVID-19.
