The pharmacy residency program (PGY1) started in 1993 and has trained more than 40 pharmacists to date. Four residency positions are available for a 12-month residency starting in the middle of June.
The program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and is part of the ASHP Midyear Residency Showcase and the ASHP Resident Matching Program.
At TMC, residents practice as a respected team member, contributing to the management and development of the entire department. There are many opportunities to work with interdisciplinary teams. We also offer countless teaching opportunities with many different disciplines in a variety of venues with options of teaching certificate programs (community or academic).
