About Our Program

Welcome to the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas (BHSET). Our purpose is to build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives. Residents who successfully complete PGY1 residency programs will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education, and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e., BCPS), and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.

BHSET is a 500-bed community teaching hospital serving seven surrounding counties with a population in excess of 550,000. We are a Level IV trauma center and are accredited as primary care centers for both stroke and chest pain. We have a level III NICU to provide care for our tiny patients.  In collaboration with Acadian EMS,  we are the home base of an air medical program supporting the entirety of the Southeast Texas region.   Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas provides abundant resources for outpatient and inpatient services, including multiple outpatient infusion centers, outpatient oncology, and the only inpatient behavioral health facility in Southeast Texas.

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency conducted by Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas is accredited by ASHP. During this program, residents will work closely with pharmacists, physicians, medical residents, mid-level practitioners, nurses, administrators, and various other disciplines to provide care for a diverse patient population. Residents will work with a mentor to individualize the residency program to help them achieve their personal and professional goals. Residents will complete core and longitudinal rotations, develop leadership and precepting skills, complete a major research project and complete a teaching certificate program.
