The post-graduate year one pharmacy residency offers two positions. A post-graduate year two pharmacy residency is available in infectious diseases.

Our program is designed to train select, highly motivated and qualified pharmacists and prepare them to provide patient centered pharmaceutical care as a clinical pharmacist in acute care medicine.
