Xavier University of Louisiana’s Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency program provides residents the opportunity to practice primarily in ambulatory care sites. The major emphasis of the program will be placed on the development of clinical practice skills that can be applied to pharmacist-managed, interdisciplinary, or managed care team approaches to patient care. While practicing in ambulatory care sites is the main focus, residents must complete a required internal medicine and drug information rotations. Two elective rotations in areas ranging from Critical Care to Outpatient Oncology are also incorporated into the program (full listing of elective opportunities below). In order to prepare residents for opportunities in academia and beyond, the program offers a teaching certificate program, as well as, didactic and experiential teaching. Opportunities will also be available for the residents to participate in outcomes research with Xavier’s Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities Research and Education (CMHHDRE). Upon completion of this program, the resident will be able to assume a clinical position in an ambulatory clinic, hospital setting or a faculty position in academia.

About Xavier University of Louisiana
Founded in 1925 by Saint Katharine Drexel and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, Xavier is Catholic and historically Black. The ultimate purpose of the University is to contribute to the promotion of a more just and humane society by preparing its students to assume roles of leadership and service in a global society. This preparation takes place in a diverse learning and teaching environment that incorporates all relevant educational means, including research and community service. Our vision is to be the premier institution preparing pharmacy practitioners who demonstrate outstanding leadership and dedication to the medically underserved populations in our society, while striving to eliminate healthcare disparities. While the College of Pharmacy has played a major role in educating African American pharmacists, it has been integral in educating a diverse student population and remains committed to achieving excellence in all of its endeavors. The mission of the College of Pharmacy is to prepare pharmacists to impact medically underserved communities, particularly African Americans, in an effort to eliminate health disparities through patient-centered care, community service a...nd scholarly work. This mission is complementary to the university’s mission of “promoting a more just and humane society.” The College is committed to preparing all students for the broad range of careers in pharmacy by building a strong knowledge base in theory and practice, promoting critical thinking skills, and encouraging professional development and life-long learning. The University is located in the city of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz and one of America's oldest, most unique and multicultural cities. Currently undergoing one of the most extensive restoration and rebuilding effort in the recent history of the U.S., boundless opportunities are available to define and contribute to the new face of healthcare in the region.
