Riverview Health is a 52-week, ASHP-accredited Postgraduate Year 1 (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program. Riverview Health is comprised of a full-service, 156-bed hospital in Noblesville, a 16-bed hospital in Westfield, as well as freestanding combined ER and urgent care facilities. Riverview Health is located between Butler University, Purdue University, and Manchester University Colleges of Pharmacy. The purpose of our PGY1 pharmacy residency program is to build upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes by contributing to the development of pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, abilities, skills, and competencies as defined in each learning experience. Residents who successfully complete our PGY1 residency program will be skilled in providing diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education and be prepared to seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (BCPS) and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies. Our primary goal is to develop well-rounded pharmacy practitioners prepared to optimize drug therapy in patients with a wide range of conditions.

In addition, residents will be given the opportunity to precept APPE students throughout the residency year and demonstrate their ability to educate other members of the health care team, patients and the community on drug-related issues.
