Over four decades of Pharmacy Residency 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.
Residents in our ASHP-Accredited programs 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. The University
of Georgia awards a graduate certificate for successful completion of the residency
program. Applicants for the AU Medical Center-University of Georgia College of Pharmacy
residencies must be eligible for licensure as a pharmacist in Georgia at the start
of the residency.
AU Medical Center and University of Georgia 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 residency preceptors are a tight-knit family that consists of both medical center
employees and full time paid college faculty. One unique aspect is that the hospital
pharmacists all have appointments as clinical faculty and/or preceptors at the University
of Georgia College of Pharmacy, and the full-time faculty also have an appointment
as a pharmacist in the Medical Center Pharmacy Department.
