At Palmetto Health, we have offered an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists-accredited residency program in pharmacy since 1972.
Our program is housed at Palmetto Health Richland, a 649-bed regional teaching hospital in Columbia, South Carolina, that treats patients from every county in the state. We currently offer two PGY1 pharmacy residencies and PGY2 pharmacy residencies that focus in critical care, infectious diseases and pediatrics.
Our PGY1 residencies are designed for students to become general practitioners and fully-integrated members of the interdisciplinary pharmacy, able to make medication recommendations in a variety of clinical settings. Training focuses on developing abilities to understand a wide range of diseases and disorders that occur in many patient types.
Our ASHP-accredited PGY1 Residency 37200 (inpatient) at Palmetto Health Richland is designed to transition a pharmacy student to a general practitioner. PGY1 residency graduates exit our program equipped to be fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary health care team, able to make medication recommendations in a variety of clinical settings. Training focuses on developing the resident with the capabilities to understand a wide range of diseases and disorders that occur in many patient types. The residency is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
Residents in our ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency 37013 (outpatient) at Palmetto Health Richland focus on growth as a practitioner in outpatient and transitions of care settings.
