Saint Barnabas Residency Accredited by ASHP
Mylan School of Pharmacy
The postgraduate year one pharmacy (PGY-1) residency program at Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy/Saint Barnabas Health System has been granted a six-year accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) and the American Pharmacists Association (APhA). ASHP is the only nationally recognized non-governmental, non-profit pharmacy association that has been accrediting pharmacy residencies since 1962. Residency accreditation is an important driver for excellence, serving as a bridge between education and practice. This accreditation marked one the first few accreditation experiences for ASHP-APhA with a skilled-care focus. St. Barnabas Health System is one of our long-standing Academic Partners with the School of Pharmacy. They provide Duquesne University student pharmacists, faculty, residents and fellows with an opportunity to improve health outcomes in a geriatric population.
"Receiving a 6 year accreditation is quite a feat for a new program such as this," said the program's director, Dr. Christine O'Neil.
