From the Program Director
Mayo Clinic’s foundation is built upon the three shields of patient care, education, and research. The PGY-1 Residency Program at Mayo Clinic in Florida is designed to develop residents into skilled clinical pharmacists. Residents participate in the care of patients using the most current evidence-based standards of care while continuously focusing on Mayo Clinic’s primary value of “the needs of the patient come first.”
Over the course of the year, your knowledge base and pharmacotherapeutic skills will mature through participation in interdisciplinary patient care rounds, review of complex patients, and topic discussions. Teaching and precepting skills will be strengthened as you provide presentations to a variety of health care practitioners, co-precept pharmacy students, and complete a teaching certificate program. Research skills enhanced by progressing through all steps of the research process from developing a project proposal, completing data collection, through manuscript submission. Leadership skills refined through rotation and longitudinal experiences including serving as Chief Resident.
The PGY-1 residency year is tailored to your professional needs and desires. Our dedicated preceptors provide guidance to expand upon your clinical skills and help you reach your professional goals. The commitment devoted to this residency program will serve you well in future endeavors.

Mayo Clinic uses an electronic medical record, computerized physician order entry, computerized outpatient prescription entry, clinical decision-support tools and a computer-based monitoring system to provide advanced pharmaceutical care. This system integrates data from pharmacy, laboratory, microbiology, and admissions and utilizes specific algorithms to alert pharmacists to potential situations where therapy, safety or costs can be positively impacted.
The electronic medical record provides an opportunity to:
- Review patient demographic, laboratory and microbiology data; medications; and drug levels during medication profile review, while on team rounds and during dispensing activities
- Identify patients whose medication therapy requires a pharmacist's daily review
- Identify and review treatments that are inconsistent with established medication rule-based algorithms
