The Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Pharmacy Residency Program is an ASHP accredited PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency program.
The mission of the program is to develop pharmacists that provide evidence-based, compassionate, patient-focused and cost-effective pharmaceutical care for Kaiser Permanente Hawaii members and become self-directed learners with leadership skills to help further advance pharmacy practice.
This Residency provides a unique experience to develop advanced clinical pharmacy skills in a diverse range of practice settings, including ambulatory care, acute patient care, practice management, and drug use policy development/formulary management. Established physician-pharmacist partnerships allow residents to develop effective academic detailing and formulary management skills. The program provides multiple opportunities to establish community partnerships via precepting students and participating in professional conferences. The successful resident will have developed skills of clinical drug therapy application, interpersonal communication, critical literature evaluation, and formulary management necessary to function in a managed care organization or as an integral member of the health care team in either an ambulatory care, institutional setting or in an advanced practice pharmacy residency program.
