The Residency Program
The ASHP Accredited PGY1 Residency in Pharmacy Practice at St. Joseph’s Medical Center is a twelve-month experiential learning process designed to give the resident comprehensive training in providing pharmaceutical care in an integrated health system. Since 1990, our residents have graduated making an impact in pharmacy practice in a variety of roles including Clinical Pharmacist, Clinical Pharmacy Management, Academia, Operations Pharmacy Management and even Clinical Informatics.
Unlike traditional residency programs consisting of 4 week rotations, St. Joseph’s Medical Center provides 6 and 8 week learning experiences that blends core rotations with longitudinal rotations. A longer core rotation enhances the resident’s learning experience by integrating multiple services within a single core offering a realistic learning opportunity teaching time management skills.
