    William Jeffrey Brown Welcome to our Pharmacy Residency website and thank you for your interest in our PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency program. As the Lead Clinical Pharmacist, I have dedicated myself to crafting a strong, decentralized clinical pharmacy program.

    I have more than 30-years’ experience as a clinical pharmacist in large, medium and small-sized hospitals. My experience includes 25 years in teaching hospitals, where I have been actively involved in training medical and pharmacy residents as well as serving as a preceptor for pharmacy residents and students. I am very enthused about training pharmacy residents at YRMC as our system is large enough to provide a variety of quality experiences yet small enough to give as much individual attention as the resident requires.
