Learning Experiences


The residency program is extremely flexible, permitting individualization of the schedule based on the interests of the resident. During the clinical rotations, the resident participates in all aspects of patient medication use therapy, including selection, assessment, monitoring, reconciliation, safety, and adherence. The resident will work as part of the multidisciplinary team, advising physicians, nurses, and patients on the appropriate medication use. After orientation to the pharmacy department, the resident begins a series of rotations and other longitudinal activities designed to meet the goals and objectives of The Valley Hospital PGY1 residency program.
