Emory Decatur Hospital’s post-graduate year one (PGY-1) pharmacy residency program builds on your Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and establishes a foundation of clinical practice you can apply in various professional settings.

More than 50 PGY-1 pharmacy residents have trained at Emory Decatur Hospital since our program was certified by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists in 1989.
