  • Complex supply chain networks

  • Didactic learning experiences, and more

ASHP Required purpose statement

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

The PGY1 / 2 HSPAL Residency conducted by Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, MA is currently a pre-candidate for accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists.


The Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) Residency Program strives to be a program that will address our pharmacy residents’ career goals and interest areas. We participate in the ASHP residency match and, as this is out inaugural year, are in pre-candidate accreditation status. Our affiliations are with Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and Western New England University College of Pharmacy.
