PGY-1 Managed Care Residency Program
The postgraduate year one (PGY-1) Managed Care Residency programs are designed to provide pharmacists with a unique perspective on managed care. Pharmacists completing the post-graduate Managed Care Residency Program will be competent and confident practitioners in a dynamic Pharmacy Benefits Management (PBM) environment. Residents will be accountable for understanding the role of a pharmacist in a PBM and the individual departments that operate within the PBM. They will also gain a clinical and administrative perspective in the management of pharmacy benefit plans for a wide variety of clients through multi-faceted experiences.
