Welcome from the Residency Program Director

As a graduate and alumnus of the Einstein Healthcare Network PGY1 residency program, I take great pride in welcoming you to learn more about our institution, department and program.

At Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, residents are exposed to a wide range of patient populations, disease states, healthcare professionals and preceptors that will lead to a well-rounded year and experience. This program encompasses six core rotations with a multitude of elective rotations, precepted by experienced and knowledgeable pharmacists. We emphasize evidence based medicine and help the resident develop their own style to ensure they graduate with strong clinical and critical thinking skills that contribute to successful careers.

I am eager to hear more about your interest, provide you with more information and look forward to potentially working with you!

Best Regards,

Leila Forouzan, PharmD, CACP
