Our postgraduate residency training programs provide essential clinical training for advancement within the profession of pharmacy. We are the leader amongst New York State pharmacy schools for residency matching.  

Our ASHP-accredited residencies offer outstanding training in a variety of practice sites including an advanced academic medical center, primary care practices designated as patient-centered medical homes, innovative independent community pharmacies, and a managed care pharmacy setting.

Postgraduate year 1 (PGY 1) and postgraduate year 2 (PGY 2) pharmacy residency programs provide essential clinical training for graduate pharmacists that allows for advancement within the profession of pharmacy.  Residencies offered through the UB SPPS offer numerous advantages over freestanding programs. 

Residents receive a Clinical Instructor appointment at the school and participate in a Teaching Certificate Program and a variety of teaching experiences including lecturing, precepting, and small group teaching.  All residents complete a residency project and have access to the many scholarly resources available at the University at Buffalo, the largest and most comprehensive research university in the State University of New York (SUNY) system. 

Our goal is to develop leaders who will practice autonomously as an integral member of the health-care team in the clinical pharmacy setting and/or as a clinical faculty member in the academic setting in a professional, ethical, and competent manner.
