Rotations St. Elizabeth Dearborn’s PGY1 program offers a selection of diverse patient care rotations, allowing for the flexibility to pursue individual goals. During each rotation, the resident is expected to perform independently and demonstrate an increasing proficiency in pharmacy practice. The resident will develop critical thinking skills, while monitoring patient progress and medication therapy.
