Pharmacy residency

Explore the aspects of our pharmacy residency programs. We emphasize real-world learning experiences that give you time with patients to develop critical understanding of their needs. Learn more about where you can apply for residency.

Our pharmacy residency programs

Our PGY1 pharmacy residency programs are highly competitive.

Hands-on clinical experiences

Become part of the largest healthcare organization in the nation. Augment your classroom knowledge and develop your skills in real-world situations within a structured clinical setting.

During your clinical rotations, you'll assume increasing levels of responsibility for your patients. A skilled preceptor will guide you as you perform medication use assessment and monitoring, attend rounds, provide patient education, answer questions about medications and participate in clinical projects.

Technologically progressive

Our programs operate within clinically progressive pharmacy departments. We offer advanced technologies, such as:

  • Off-site pharmacist order entry
  • Computerized physician order entry
  • Automated IV manufacture
  • Automated point-of-care dispensing cabinets with Bio-ID
  • Electronic barcode medication administration

National matching services participation

We participate in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Resident Matching Program (the “Match”). These residency sites agree that no person at this site will solicit, accept or use any ranking-related information from any residency applicant.
