The TMC Pharmacy Residency Program (PGY1) started in 1993. Four residency positions are available for a 12-month residency starting in the middle of June. The program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and is part of the ASHP Midyear Residency Showcase and the ASHP Resident Matching Program.
At TMC, residents practice as a respected team member, contributing to the management and development of the entire department. There are many opportunities to work with interdisciplinary teams.
Our residency program is unique in that it allows the resident flexibility to individualize the program to meet personal goals and aspirations.
Teaching opportunities for residents include either a teaching certificate at TMC with a community focus or teaching certificate with the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy with an academic focus. There is also mentoring and precepting, facilitating case studies, topic discussions, patient presentations, and providing educational in-services to inpatient pharmacy, nursing and ancillary staff, as well as the community. A formal one-hour continuing education lecture is presented to pharmacy and medical staff.
Staffing is required every other weekend and includes both central verification and clinical duties.
A residency project is required with the summary and results presented at the Western States Residency Conference.
