Saint Joseph Health System
Location: Mishawaka, Indiana
OK! First things first. A group of us will be in person at Midyear! ...BUT a whole slew of us will also be virtual on December 15th at 1000-1050, 1100-1150, 1200-1250, 100-150, 200-250, 300-350, Eastern Time, on zoom. (link below) Look forward to seeing you! Check out our information on the google drive (link below) and on instagram @SJHSpharmresidency for this and other places you can find us. Don't forget to sign our guestbook (link below).
AND! Second things second. We are approximately 80% through our process of requesting a SECOND PGY1 position for this program. This far in the process, I am pretty confident that we will have TWO PGY1 resident positions for the 2023-2024 year and beyond.
AND! Third things third. If you would like to apply to both of our PGY1 programs, feel free! We'll probably notice as we pay attention to that sort of thing, but we assign no meaning or significance to it other than the fact that you may be interested in both programs. Thanks!
