UAMS College of Pharmacy Congratulates Class of 2016’s PGY1 Matches

UAMS College of Pharmacy students are going places…nationally and professionally! On April 22, our college celebrated these students and their match-day achievements with a symbolic “pinning of the map” ceremony.

Match days and residencies are usually synonymous with medical students, but the frequency of pharmacy students choosing more training instead of hitting the job market right after earning their pharmacy degree, has grown across the country in the past decade. As recent as 2007, there were only 10 pharmacy residency positions in Arkansas. Now, there are 30. The UAMS College of Pharmacy itself offers nearly 10 residencies, including community, managed care, policy, and public health focuses.

In previous years, the UAMS College of Pharmacy has seen the number of its students accepted for residencies hover in the high single digits and mid-teens, but this year 20 students are headed to residency programs across the state and country. The following Class of 2016 soon-to-be graduates have accepted the following PGY1 opportunities:
