At Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Pharmacy, our mission is to deliver superior medication-related care that supports excellent outcomes. Our pharmacy staff is an integral part of the care team at Rutland Regional, working closely with providers and nursing staff to provide outstanding service with a focus on quality and patient safety.

In addition to inpatient care, our group staffs three outpatient clinics and our on-site retail pharmacy.
The Pharmacy Residency Program
The purpose of our PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is to provide a challenging and rewarding environment in which our residents can learn and train – advancing the knowledge and skills they need to work as pharmacists in a range of settings.
Our residents will develop important problem-solving skills, as well as an understanding of their accountability and responsibility to their patients. Our curriculum is designed to build upon their existing knowledge of medication-related care by providing frequent and direct patient care experience.
Additionally, residents will learn to monitor and assess their own performance to continually improve their practice during their residency and beyond. Rutland Regional’s PGY1 Pharmacy training will prepare pharmacists for job placement, BCPS certification and/or PGY2 residency.
Our PGY1 pharmacy residency program will be in candidate status for the 2020-2021 residency year. We are confident our program will provide a tremendously valuable experience and will receive accreditation following our survey.
