Providence Tarzana Medical Center (PTMC) PGY1 Acute Care Pharmacy Residency Program is committed to providing an environment with advanced education and training experiences. The residency program is designed to develop practitioner excellence in the provision of patient-centered, evidence-based care. Our philosophy is to continually advance and pioneer the pharmacy profession with a wide variety of clinical responsibilities and duties performed daily by our pharmacy staff to improve patient care.

Our program emphasizes developing practical skills into the residency experience.
We hope to develop future pharmacist leaders by designing a residency program around skills we believe are essential to a promising career in various opportunities available to pharmacists today. Our residents will be competent in a variety of pharmacist’s functions including clinical, operational, administrative, education and leadership roles.
