The Residency Program in Pharmacy is designed to train selected, highly motivated and highly qualified pharmacists so that they are prepared to provide pharmaceutical care as a clinical pharmacist in an acute, tertiary care facility and/or continue into an advanced residency or fellowship in an area of pharmacy practice or research. Residents also receive the fundamental experiences necessary for BCSP examination as well as training and experience in teaching so that they are prepared to precept pharmacy students and residents. Residents will learn to demonstrate professional leadership and to develop lifelong learning skills that will lead to career satisfaction.

The program emphasizes clinical practice and includes rotations in general medicine, surgery, critical care, infectious disease and drug information. Elective rotations are available in other clinical and administrative areas. The program also requires the resident to learn and develop teaching and research techniques.

This residency participates in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Residency Matching Program and is fully accredited by ASHP. Upon successful completion of the residency program, an appropriate certificate is awarded to the resident by the college and the hospital.
