The ASHP accredited residency program at Mercy Health Saint Mary's is designed to help pharmacists transition from the role of student to the role of practitioner. Pharmacists choosing to pursue residency training set themselves down a career path that has the potential for greatly increased job satisfaction and, more importantly, better patient care. The PGY-1 residency at Mercy Health Saint Mary's is a rigorous and intentional advanced-training program. The program is customized for each individual resident, with rotations selected and learning activities oriented toward the individual resident's learning needs.
