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.
Residents are an active member of the healthcare team with opportunities to influence medication use and safe practices. Each resident has opportunities to be involved with teaching pharmacy students, formulary management, policy development, antimicrobial stewardship, medication safety, IRB approved research project development, completion, and presentation at the annual ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and the Florida Residency Conference.
Our supportive, close-knit workplace means a friendly, caring, patient-centered environment with one-on-one daily interactions with preceptors and the medical staff. Each resident has his/her own personal desk in a spacious office. Residents also receive a personal laptop with remote access to all of the necessary clinical tools a resident needs. The PGY1 program at Ascension Sacred Heart Pensacola (ASHP) offers flexibility, while providing a strong foundation in all areas of pharmacy practice.

More than a century ago, when the people of Pensacola asked for better healthcare and a more modern hospital, their prayers were answered by the Daughters of Charity. The Daughters comprise a religious order that was founded in 1633 in France by St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac with the mission of caring for the poor and the sick. The Daughters came to Pensacola not only to build a hospital, but to carry out their charitable mission of providing excellent healthcare to all persons, with special attention to the poor and vulnerable.
Today, the hospital built in Pensacola by the Sisters continues that same mission. Pensacola remains the hub of what has become a truly regional Health System with three hospital campuses, as well as outpatient facilities, physician offices and other services spanning 200 miles of the Gulf Coast from Gulf Shores, Ala. to Apalachicola, Fla.
After 50 years in its original stone structure on 12th Avenue, the hospital relocated in 1965 to a new hospital off Ninth Avenue in Pensacola, across from Cordova Mall.
Since then, Sacred Heart has continued to advance its technology and expand its services. In August of 1996, Sacred Heart Children's Hospital - Northwest Florida's first and only children's hospital - opened on the Pensacola campus.
In 2000, Sacred Heart completed major expansion projects that added new wings for surgical suites, a Regional Heart and Vascular Institute and a new center for emergency/trauma services. Sacred Heart teamed up with Methodist Homes to open the new Haven of Our Lady of Peace nursing home off Summit Boulevard in November 2001.
Sacred Heart completed the largest expansion of its Pensacola campus in 2014 with the construction of the Bayou Tower, which added 112 private rooms to the hospital. In 2016, Sacred Heart broke ground on a new four-story Children's Hospital -- the Studer Family Children's Hospital at Sacred Heart -- which opened in 2019.
Today, Sacred Heart continues its legacy of serving individuals, families and communities as part of Ascension. Together, our caregivers strive to bring you coordinated, compassionate care that is personalized to your individual needs.
