Pharmacy Residency Program

Training Tomorrow’s Top Pharmacists

At St. Dominic’s, we offer post-graduate education to develop clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions. Our commitment to quality education prepares pharmacists to become highly qualified independent practitioners.

PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency

The post-graduate year one (PGY-1) program allows residents to deliver evidence-based, cost-effective care in unit-based and multidisciplinary settings. PGY-1 residents hone their leadership and project management skills through participation in practice-based research and departmental and organizational quality improvement initiatives. Residents who complete this program are eligible for board certification and PGY-2 residency training.

How to Apply

Applications should be submitted in January for the next school year.
