We employ over 120 pharmacists, with many of those serving as residency preceptors. Clinical Pharmacy Practitioners are an integral part of the treatment teams, serving internal medicine, critical care, surgical, long-term care, infectious disease, primary care, as well as specialty clinics including hematology/oncology, women's clinic, liver, and heart failure. We offer a PGY1 program, as well as PGY2 specialty programs in Ambulatory Care, Geriatrics, and Pain Management/Palliative Care.
