Residency In Pharmacy Practice

Since 1990, we have trained residents in contemporary practice who have gone on to become University Faculty, Directors of Pharmacy, Assistant Directors of Pharmacy, Clinical Pharmacists as well as Staff Pharmacists.

Pharmacy Residency Program

The ASHP Accredited 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. 

Unlike traditional residency programs consisting of four week rotations, St. Joseph’s Medical Center provides a learning experience that blends core rotations with longitudinal rotations. Longer core rotations provide the resident a learning experience that integrates multiple services within a single core. By blending the core rotation experience with a longitudinal rotation, this structure offers a realistic learning opportunity that teaches time management skills.

Pharmacy Services At St. Joseph's 

The pharmacy services of St. Joseph’s Medical Center are part of an integrated health system that offers comprehensive and progressive patient focused pharmaceutical care. The system consists of a large central pharmacy and four satellite pharmacies located in key areas of the Medical Center. The satellite pharmacists provide a wide variety of pharmaceutical care to the patients in their areas.

Under the direction of the medical staff, the pharmacists are active in a number of pharmacist-managed drug protocols, including: TPN, pharmacokinetics, warfarin, heparin, renal dosing and IV-to-PO conversions. Ambulatory Care services include Home Health Care, Behavioral Health Services, Chronic Disease, and Anticoagulant Clinic.
