Pharmacy Residency Overview

With the completion of your pharmacy education, the focus turns quickly to building a successful future. Mercy Medical Center, a respected health care leader in the Midwest, invites you to build your pharmacy future with us through the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program or one of our two PGY2 residency programs in either Emergency Medicine or Infectious Disease.

The Pharmacy Residency Programs provide a comprehensive set of experiences emphasizing clinical pharmacy practice as well as aspects of pharmacy management.

Each resident's schedule of rotations is individualized to meet his or her personal and professional goals. Residents also have opportunities to get involved with formulary management, medication safety and attend multidisciplinary committee meetings. Residents are expected to participate in journal club, case discussions, formulary review, medication use evaluation, didactic teaching at Drake University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and complete a research project.
