Pharmacy

Medical Center Hospital and its pharmacy department operates on core values of integrity, accountability, respect, excellence, and patient-centered care. As a resident and practicing clinician in this institution, these values will be the foundation of all expectations during the PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program as well as the PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency.

Medical Center Hospital initiated its PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program with two residents in July 2014. Our re-accreditation visit from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists for this 12-month residency program was completed in 2020, and we are accredited until 2024. In 2018, our PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency program was started and was officially accredited from 2020 until 2028.
