PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program

The PVHMC PGY-1 pharmacy residency is structured in rotations across a variety of clinical and administrative areas and includes both block and longitudinal rotations. The required rotations provide a breadth of experiences throughout the inpatient hospital setting. The elective rotations will provide the resident opportunities to individualize the residency based on their areas of interest. Required rotations may be repeated during elective blocks if the resident chooses.

Upon satisfactory completion of the one-year residency, the participant will receive a Certificate of Completion of a Residency issued by Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. The certification of completion requires:
