Pharmacy Residency Program

The Postgraduate year one (PGY-1) Acute Pharmacy Residency at Adventist Health Central Valley Network is an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited program tailored to provide various clinical experiences for future pharmacy providers. Residents will be exposed to interdisciplinary teams and will actively engage in various roles both as a resident and an independent pharmacist. Residents will gain the foundation of being a clinical pharmacist in acute hospital care settings, while actively interacting with patients in ambulatory settings alongside other providers. Additionally, residents will participate in various medication management administrative projects and policy oversight to understand the role of a Pharmacy Department in hospital administration and population health.

The residency program focuses on providing solid foundations to develop advanced pharmaceutical skills in both acute care and ambulatory care settings.
