Providence Holy Family Hospital is a new program in pre-candidate status pursuing ASHP accreditation in the 2019-2020 residency year. We are seeking dedicated and motivated candidates with a collaborative mindset to be our first residents. Pharmacy residents at Providence Holy Family Hospital will build on the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and abilities gained from a professional pharmacy degree program to improve clinical knowledge, leadership abilities, process development, and multidisciplinary teamwork.
Our PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program is designed to meet the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists requirements and residents will work in a patient centered learning environment to receive a well-rounded education. Residents will encounter a diverse patient population with predominantly acute care rotations as well as ambulatory experiences. Residents will learn all aspects of hospital pharmacy including clinical, administration, and drug distribution.

Multiple services are offered including but not limited to: emergency medicine, critical care, internal medicine, surgery, and oncology.
Engaged Pharmacy Department
The pharmacy department at Providence Holy Family is a supportive group of individuals positioned to provide a strong residency program. We provide multiple clinical services, utilize various prescriptive authority protocols, and maintain positive and strong relationships with other disciplines in the hospital to collaborate in patient care activities.
