At Prisma Health Richland Hospital, we have offered an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists-accredited residency program in pharmacy since 1972. As an institution, we were formally known as Palmetto Health Richland. Our name may have changed, but our dedication to providing residents a year committed to excellence in teaching, patient care, and research has not.
Our program is located at Prisma Health Richland, a 641-bed regional teaching hospital in Columbia, South Carolina, that treats patients from every county in the state. We currently offer two PGY1 pharmacy residencies, a PGY1/2 Health System and Leadership residency, and PGY2 pharmacy residencies that focus in cardiology, critical care, infectious diseases, internal medicine and pediatrics.
Our PGY2 Residency in Critical Care Pharmacy at Prisma Health Richland Hospital is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from a general practitioner to one in a specialized practice that meets the needs of critically ill patients. PGY2 residency graduates exit our program equipped to be fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary critical care team, able to make complex medication and nutrition support recommendations in this fast-paced environment.
Our PGY2 Cardiology Pharmacy Residency is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from a general practitioner to one in a specialized practice that meets the needs of patients with a variety of cardiovascular diseases. Graduates exit our program equipped to be fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary cardiology care team, able to make complex and evidence-based medication recommendations in this fast-paced environment.
Our postgraduate year two residency in infectious diseases pharmacy at Prisma Health Richland Hospital offers 12 months of clinical training with an emphasis on research and academia. This program provides comprehensive training in both general ID and HIV. Our faculty are noted regional and national experts in clinical infectious diseases, with track records of success in research and academia. Patient care activities occur primarily at Prisma Health Richland Hospital, our university-affiliated tertiary care academic medical center. Primary and elective rotations focus on key areas of inpatient and outpatient infectious diseases to include microbiology, HIV clinic, ID consults, antimicrobial stewardship and global health.
Our PGY2 Internal Medicine Pharmacy Residency is designed to produce a well-rounded pharmacy practitioner who is equipped to meet the needs of patients with a variety of complex medical diseases. This practitioner will be capable of integrating with an interdisciplinary internal medicine care team. Graduates of the internal medicine residency will be able to make complex evidence-based medication recommendations and support their future institution through committee involvement as a subject matter expert in internal medicine. They will have gained experience in a variety of disease states with a strong focus on anticoagulation, diabetes and insulin management, antibiotic stewardship, respiratory diseases and transitions of care. Graduates will be experienced in short-term research in one or more care environments and will excel in their ability to teach other health professionals and trainees.
