Pharmacy Residency Programs

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center’s Pharmacy Residency Program is committed to developing confident, competent and compassionate pharmacists with strong clinical and communication skills to care for our patients and educate future generations of healthcare professionals.

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

Our goals for our residents are excellence in clinical practice and teaching, readiness for additional post-graduate training and eligibility for board certification. At our institution, residents 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. In addition, the program is affiliated with Keck Graduate Institute School of Pharmacy, Western University of Health Sciences’ College of Pharmacy, University of Southern California School of Pharmacy, Loma Linda University School of Pharmacy providing the residents with a plethora of educational resources as well as valuable teaching experiences.

To attain these goals for our residents, we believe in a diversity of practice, research and teaching experiences working alongside experienced pharmacists, physicians, and other healthcare professionals.

PVHMC is committed to building a workforce through the use of equity and inclusion that reflects the diversity of the community we serve, that provides equal opportunities, and a collaborative, empowering work environment, and that is free of discrimination and harassment.
