Hi Everyone!!! Our super stellar first year pharmacy residents HAVE early commited to the PGY2 program. All positions are filled. However, leaving this posted in case prospective PGY1 applicants want to know we have this PGY2. Best of luck in your pursuit!!!!!!!
Saint Joseph Health System is proud to offer three Pharmacy Resident positions in a 52 week, ASHP accredited, PGY2 Ambulatory Care pharmacy residency program. Alongide our PGY1 ambulatory care program and our family medicine residency program this residency calls the Saint Joseph Health System Family Medicine Center home with some clinics conducted on site as well as some conducted throughout our physician network. The residency year is comprised of both elective and required experiences combined in a quadrimester (Yep...quadrimester is a real thing) format in addition to a few elective block rotations. Yep, we know it's nontraditional. Feel free to ask us about it. The curriculum of the PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program emulates the practice of the Pharmacy Residency faculty. Patient care, teaching, practice management and project management occur longitudinally across the entire residency year. These practical and realistic experiences will develop an exemplary ambulatory care pharmacist who is proficient and compassionate in all interactions with patients, learners and colleagues, as well as a humble leader within the profession of Pharmacy.

You can't turn around without teaching someone: patients, students, residents, even faculty. Residents have the opportunity to complete didactic lectures for pharmacists, pharmacy residents, and medical residents at Saint Joseph Health System. In addition to this, residents have the lecture opportunities at colleges of pharmacy. Residents are given the opportunity to create development plans for the incoming PGY1 class, create and lead the residency didactics and leadership sessions, precept pharmacy students, PGY1 pharmacy residents, and PGY2 and PGY3 medical residents. If you have not done one, residents are able to participate in the Indiana Pharmacy Teaching Certificate
Residency Pearls Beyond Our Stellar Preceptors and Curriculum
The Mission of Saint Joseph Health Center is very tangible on a daily basis.
We focus on training people who happen to have chosen pharmacy as a profession instead of just training pharmacists.
Our atmosphere is unique as we are a residency program that grew a department of pharmacy.
We know our stuff, but we like to have fun. Patient care is serious, not everything else has to be.
We expect our residents to become autonomous and take great strides to foster independence by intentionally modeling, coaching, and facilitating.
We graduate a three dimensional pharmacists (even though one and two dimensional pharmacists take up less space). You will be able to treat patients, teach students, and lead into the future.
Our residency programs are very collegial. You will feel like you are part of a class of 40 residents.
Our alumni network is vast and ALL alumni freely give back to the program on an annual basis.
Our PGY1 pharmacy residency programs were among the first to include training in global health.
We are unique in having both PGY1 and PGY2 ambulatory care residency programs.
