PGY 2 Only

You should only respond to the questions in this section if you are applying to PGY 2. Do not answer these questions if you are applying for PGY 1. 

  • Did you complete or are you in the process of completing a PGY 1 residency in the US? Note that if your training program is not accredited or in candidate status with ASHP, you must complete the ASHP PGY 1 exemption process in order to be considered for PGY 2 interviews and participation in the Residency Matching Program for a PGY 2 position. 
  • When did you start practicing as a licensed pharmacist? Note that if you have not yet completed an ASHP PGY 1 residency or you attended an unaccredited pharmacy training program, you must have at least three years of full-time (or equivalent part-time) experience in a relevant practice setting. You must also complete the ASHP PGY 1 exemption process in order to be considered for PGY 2 interviews and participation in the Residency Matching Program for a PGY 2 position. 
  • Where did you complete or where will you complete your PGY 1 training? 
  • Which organization did you complete your PGY 1 training with? If the organization does not appear in the list, enter it in the field below. ASHP will verify if your program was in the ASHP accreditation process while you attended. If your program was not in the accreditation process, you must complete the ASHP PGY 1 exemption process in order to be considered for PGY 2 interviews and participation in the Residency Matching Program for a PGY 2 position. 
  • When did you or when will you complete your PGY 1? To participate in the Match for a position that begins training at the PGY 2 level, you must have already completed a PGY 1 residency or currently be in training at a PGY 1 residency that will be completed before the start of the PGY 2 residency.
