PerformRx PGY-1 Residency Program

PerformRx offers pharmacists a clinically-based, holistic residency program that is enriching, challenging, and rewarding. The PerformRx residency program is a one-year, post-graduate, ASHP-accredited program designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary in order to assume leadership roles in the managed care industry. The resident will develop an understanding of pharmacy operations specific to the diverse managed care departments within PerformRx. Each rotation will give the resident an opportunity to learn and perform the clinical duties of a pharmacist in that department.

Rotation experiences include:
  • Formulary management
  • Prior authorization
  • Medication therapy management
  • Clinical market intelligence

We also offer the opportunity for an elective rotation in an area which suits the interest of the resident.

The residency program includes a research component. The research results will be presented at a professional pharmacy conference and/or submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The completion of the research project will allow the resident to enhance skills related to project planning and development, time management, data analysis, and interpersonal skills.

The 12-month program begins the second week in July each year.
