Welcome from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the PGY 1 Pharmacy Residency Program at The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health! The goal of our program is to guide pharmacy residents to become confident, well-rounded practitioners in the acute care setting. Our program provides mentorship and flexibility to tailor the residency year to fit your interests and needs. 

Our residents gain experience through the design and execution of their residency research project, longitudinal committee commitments, leadership activities and the opportunity to teach and mentor pharmacy students/interns.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to meeting you!
