Pharmacy Residency

The Pharmacy PGY1 Residency is a 12-month program with an emphasis in acute care and experiences in ambulatory care, practice management, drug policy, hospital practice and academic development. In addition to the required residency rotations, the resident can tailor the program to his/her personal interests through a variety of elective opportunities. Our goal is to train residents to become confident and competent practitioners in the acute care setting.

Consistent with other residency programs, the design and conduct of a major project and a pharmacy practice staffing component are required. The strengths of our programpharamacy include internal medicine, critical care, emergency medicine and the numerous opportunities available to participate in the education of pharmacy students, resident physicians and other health care professionals.   Residents will also participate in a longitudinal teaching certificate program (offered by the Northeast Ohio Medical University College of Pharmacy) that will provide them with an opportunity to improve their didactic, small group and experiential teaching skills.

We look forward to speaking with you about the residency opportunities available at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have about the residency program. We will be recruiting at the OSHP and ASHP residency showcases at the Mercy Health booth. In addition, please review the residency brochure included below for detailed information about our program.
