Franciscan Health Hammond (FHH) is one of the largest acute-care hospitals in Northwest Indiana. Since its establishment in 1898, the hospital has grown to include two campuses located in Hammond and Dyer, Indiana. The Pharmacy Department at FHH is one of the most progressive in Indiana with a wide variety of clinical pharmacy programs utilizing a large number of pharmacy-driven protocols on a daily basis. The lead surveyor for ASHP Pharmacy Residency Accreditation Commission commented, “FHH pharmacy has one of the most robust clinical programs in the country.” FHH is one of many Franciscan Health hospitals known as leaders of healthcare throughout Indiana and Illinois. Throughout our hospitals and many medical practices, we offer a number of nationally recognized Centers of Health Care Excellence.
The purpose of our PGY1 Residency Program is to provide exemplary training and mentorship preparing first year pharmacy residents for general direct patient care positions or for PGY2 training in area of choice. The program at FHH allows the resident to pursue personal interests through a flexible training experience. The resident will work with clinical specialists in various areas to provide comprehensive patient care, including monitoring pharmacokinetics, anticoagulant dosing, and nutritional support. Furthermore, the resident will gain competence in the areas of practice management, drug information, acute patient care, and ambulatory care in pharmacist-managed clinics. There are numerous opportunities throughout the program to write newsletter articles, present formal lectures, and serve as a preceptor for PharmD candidates. The resident is expected to present their year-long research project at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Great Lakes Pharmacy Resident Conference. Upon completion of the program, the resident is qualified for a patient care position or to pursue a PGY-2 training program in the area of their choice.
