Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) has launched its first-ever Pharmacy Residency Program to provide post-graduate training for recent pharmacy school graduates. It joins the Family Medicine Residency Program as the Hospital’s second graduate medical education logo

The one-year program provides a vast array of rotation experiences that are both required and elective for program completion. It also provides residents with a wide range of knowledge and prepares them for additional post-graduate training if desired. Residents in the program will gain a wealth of hands-on experience in acute-care pharmacy practice, ranging from emergency medicine and intensive care to various inpatient clinical specialties as well as outpatient opportunities.

The inaugural class of two residents, Genevieve Cheung and Stephen Selvanayagam, began July 2, 2018, and runs through June 30, 2019.

“After Genevieve and Stephen complete the program, they will be able to independently and comfortably work as pharmacists in a health care institution without any reservations,” said PVHMC Director of Pharmacy Michael Campbell, PharmD, MBA. “They can choose an inpatient hospital or outpatient setting and a wide variety of clinical specialties, including ambulatory care, critical care, emergency medicine and infectious disease, to name a few.”

After its first residents graduate, the residency program will be eligible to seek accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, a nationally-recognized accrediting organization.

“Having a program to help post-graduate pharmacy students learn is a great addition to PVHMC,” Michael said. “Once they’re done with this program, I can say in confidence that our residents will be able to work anywhere.”
