Application Process


The program consists of a one-year period of concentrated training in all aspects of pharmacy practice. The residency program is flexible, allowing the resident to maximally individualize the experience within the framework of ASHP accreditation guidelines. Learning activities for each of the rotations will accommodate the resident’s previous experiences and current goals, as well as satisfying the ASHP PGY-1 Required Outcomes. The program is of a general, clinical nature and will provide the working knowledge and experience that will enable the resident to assume a leadership role in pharmacy practice.

The goal of training is to develop the resident’s independent practice skills and confidence in a variety of general practice and specialty areas. Rotation schedules and assignments are flexible and allow for extra time in areas of interest. Residents have an opportunity to develop teaching skills as the program focuses on the development of knowledge, skills, and behaviors required for the successful provision of pharmaceutical care in the ambulatory and inpatient settings.


Interviews are an integral part of the hospital’s evaluation of potential residents, and the expectation is that serious applicants will want to evaluate the clinical site as well. Therefore, applicants are required to schedule an on-site interview once application materials are completed and submitted.
