Message from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Pharmacy Residency Program at the Albany Medical Center. We are an ASHP accredited PGY-1 training program with the primary goal of preparing residents to become excellent pharmacy practitioners, educators, researchers and leaders. Our educational experiences focus on acute inpatient care, with additional experiences in ambulatory care environments. The program is designed to provide the resident with a sound foundation in acute care pharmacy practice with the opportunity to individualize their learning experiences to their educational needs.

As a 651-bed (and expanding) teaching hospital and medical college with biomedical research facilities, our mission is to care for patients of all ages with a broad range of health conditions. Albany Medical Center serves more than three million people in 25-counties of Eastern New York and Western New England. Albany Medical Center is the only teaching hospital linked to a medical school in New York’s Capital Region and the hospital of choice for over 34,000 admitted patients each year. Patients rely on us for unique programs including a Level-I Trauma Center, an accredited stroke center, a 125 bed children’s hospital- within a hospital, and the region’s most sophisticated Emergency Department. Albany Medical Center is affiliated with the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, serving as a major experiential teaching site for ACPHS students and practice site for faculty.
