Pharmacy residency program

Post-Graduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program

The Mary Rutan Hospital PGY1 Residency Program was established in 2014 and is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Mary Rutan Hospital employees are committed to providing "progressive quality health care with a personal touch." The customer, that may also be our patient, is at the center of all the care we provide.

The purpose of the Mary Rutan Hospital PGY1 Residency Program is to develop the resident into an institutional pharmacy generalist and passionate, dedicated teacher with an affinity for institutional and community leadership roles. The residency program builds on prior experiences and provides opportunities to enhance skills beyond entry-level professional competence. The successful resident will be prepared to practice as a clinical generalist in an institutional or ambulatory care setting, obtain board certification, or pursue post-graduate year two (PGY2) residency training.

Mary Rutan Hospital offers a PGY1 residency program geared toward the specific career goals of the resident. We are open and excited to embrace residency candidates with ideas and interests geared toward expansion of pharmacy services in our institution. The residency program provides longitudinal opportunities including but not limited to: inpatient pharmacy, ambulatory care pharmacy, pharmacokinetic and anticoagulation consulting, administration and pharmacy operations, teaching and precepting, and drug policy development. Additional opportunities through collaboration with Ohio Northern University (Ada, OH) include research, and a leadership and/or teaching certificate.
