PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Residency Program - About the Program

The pharmacy residency at the VA Eastern Kansas Health Care System (VAEKHCS) is an ASHP accredited training program.  It is co-located at the Colmery-O’Neil campus in Topeka, KS and the Dwight D. Eisenhower campus in Leavenworth, KS. This PGY-1 residency program is designed to develop practitioners with the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of a successful clinical pharmacist. Graduates of the program are well prepared to pursue positions in clinical practice or PGY-2 residency programs.

Pharmacist talking with VeteranWe offer a progressive training atmosphere where pharmacists may prescribe medications, order laboratory/diagnostic tests and place consults to other services within a scope of practice. Residents learn to provide proactive, patient-centered care in multiple different clinical settings.  The Eastern Kansas Health Care System (EKHCS) pharmacy practice model integrates traditional distributive duties with advanced clinical roles.

Aside from required residency learning experiences, residents can choose from a variety of elective experiences. EKHCS also provides introductory and advanced experiential practice experiences for pharmacy students from the University of Kansas. Residents are provided the opportunity to instruct and precept students while on service.
