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 eight 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 four programs, each with competitive entry requirements and benefits: PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency Program PGY2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency Program PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency Program Learn more about all of our pharmacy resident opportunities and how to apply at www.augustahealth.org/pharmacy-residency

Pharmacy staff are among #ourAUHeroes

More recognition - this time on local TV station WRDW, for filling the supply chain void and making hand sanitizer for the hospital. PGY1 Resident Kelli Keats is getting to spend some time in media relations in addition to compounding!

There were only a few people mentioned in the story as it was written, but there have been many more who helped in this process who we'd like to recognize like Haize Newby, Herb Hall, Brooks Walker, Ryan Thacker, and Kathryn Finch.

Augusta University Health has been a front runner for multiple COVID-19 prevention operations. From creating new COVID-19 tests to running testing sites, all to help the community. But now, there's another operation going on.
