VCU Health System Residency Programs

VCU Health System Residency Programs

 The pharmacy residency programs at the VCU Health System began in 1970 as a two-year program associated with the Master of Science degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. In 1972 the hospital pharmacy program was accredited by the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists and graduated its first resident. The residency became a one-year general program in 1977. In 1983 the clinical pharmacy residency was introduced and in 1992 these programs were merged into the pharmacy practice program following the evolution of PGY1 residencies. VCU Health System now offers a PGY1 Pharmacy residency and several PGY2 residencies. Since 1972, the VCU Health System programs have graduated over 300 residents.
