The purpose of the UH Portage Medical Center PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is to graduate highly skilled pharmacists with the tools necessary to provide quality patient care as members of inter-professional health care teams. Emphasis will be placed on communication, life-long learning, evidence-based medication management and safety during experiences in internal medicine, antimicrobial stewardship, ambulatory care, medication safety, pharmacy management and academia. The setting of a community hospital in the larger health system of University Hospitals, combined with a pharmacy team driven by innovation and entrepreneurship, provides the resident with a strong foundation in pharmacy practice and community outreach. The UH Portage Medical Center PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program’s focus on personal and professional development will allow graduates to succeed in a career as a generalist pharmacy clinician or PGY2 resident.
Graduates of accredited Colleges of Pharmacy with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and eligible for licensure in the state of Ohio may submit the following materials via PhORCAS to the program director for consideration for residency program admission:
