The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program is based on our institution’s mission statement “to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.” With this faith-based principle our residents will be given a foundation for the development of a strong work ethic and will have delivery of patient-centered care as their constant motivation. The intended outcomes of this program are to provide the resident with the skills and experience needed to:
serve as a clinical pharmacist for a variety of patient populations
pursue additional training in a PGY-2 program
advance the practice of pharmacy
Upon program completion, the resident will be capable of practicing in a progressive health care organization and contributing to the promotion of contemporary pharmacy services based on total patient needs, organizational requirements, and resources.
Our program offers two PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency positions every year with experiences primarily in pediatric patient care.
Rotation experiences are four to six weeks long and tailored to the resident’s interest. Residents will be expected to staff the inpatient pharmacy every other weekend after the orientation month.
