The Providence Medford Medical Center (PMMC) PGY1 Residency Program is built upon a tradition of excellence in pharmacy services. Providence pharmacy departments in Oregon are leaders in the implementation of technology and progressive pharmacy services. Our program has been accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists since 2016.
The PGY1 program is an integrated health system residency offering learning experiences throughout Providence Health & Services in Medford. The program offers support for advanced practice-based skills in a variety of practice settings and patient populations, development of leadership skills, training in evidence-based medicine, involvement in strategic initiatives, and exposure to a variety of potential practice settings of interest including administration, ambulatory care, transitions of care, and various specialty practice areas.
In addition to the diverse learning experiences offered, our residents have the opportunity to participate in a CityWide Residency Conference, interacting with residents throughout the Oregon and Washington area, with focused training programs related to personal and professional leadership skills, teaching and presentations skills, and interactive discussions on relevant issues within health system pharmacy practice. Our residents also have the opportunity to pursue a Teaching Certificate through a program affiliated with colleges of pharmacy.
