In this article the authors discuss the role of pharmacy residency training in the development of pharmacist leaders. According to the authors, the purpose of a postgraduate year 1 (PGY1) residency is to promote growth in patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services, and to develop leadership skills. The authors say that pharmacist leaders are valuable to a health care organization because they understand the business operations of a highly complex department.
