About the Providence Newberg/Milwaukie PGY1 Pharmacy Residency
Providence Newberg Medical Center and Providence Milwaukie Hospital are small community hospitals near Portland, Oregon. They are part of the Providence Health & Services network. As the third-largest not-for-profit health system in the United States, Providence is committed to providing for the needs of our communities – especially for those who are poor and vulnerable.
Providence pharmacies in Oregon are recognized as leaders in the implementation of technology and progressive pharmacy services. The Providence Newberg/Milwaukie PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is an integrated program built on this tradition of excellence.
Providence has expanded its pharmacy residency program in Portland since initial accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) in 1994. The Newberg/Milwaukie Residency program has the perfect balance of being able to harness the already developed resources and experiences of the other Providence residencies while developing its own unique program in two smaller community hospitals. The Newberg/Milwaukie Residency has been ASHP-accredited since 2016.
Learning opportunities offered by the program
The purpose of the Providence Newberg/Milwaukie PGY1 Residency Program is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of a clinical pharmacist 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.
To achieve this, the program offers PGY1 residents opportunities to hone advanced practice-based skills in a variety of settings and patient populations; develop leadership skills; train in evidence-based medicine; be involved in strategic initiatives; and gain exposure to various practice settings (including administration, ambulatory care, transitions of care and specialty practice areas). Residents will participate in a Citywide Residency Conference and interact with fellow residents from other systems throughout Oregon and Washington. This experience provides an environment for focused training in leadership, teaching, and presentation skills while allowing the resident to also participate in discussions on relevant hospital pharmacy issues. A teaching certificate may also be pursued through a program affiliated with local colleges of pharmacy.
The Providence Newberg/Milwaukie PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is dedicated to providing residents with the knowledge, attitude and skills necessary to pursue a practice focused on optimal drug therapy outcomes.
By the end of the program, the resident will be competent in the following areas:
•Manage and improve the medication-use system, including patient safety and quality-improvement processes •Provide evidence-based, patient-centered medication therapy management with interdisciplinary teams •Exercise leadership and practice management skills in an integrated health care model •Demonstrate project management skills to achieve defined outcomes •Provide medication and practice-related education and training
We are proud to offer two PGY1 residency positions at Providence Newberg Medical Center and Providence Milwaukie Hospital. Each resident will be based at one facility but will rotate through both locations.
The traditional PGY1 residency program will expose the resident to multiple areas of pharmacy practice, including direct patient-care rotations in both acute and ambulatory settings.
