Residency Special Features:   The Riverside Methodist Hospital Department of Pharmacy Services has had approximately 40 years of experience in training pharmacy residents. The pharmacy staff takes personal interest in the clinical and administrative training. The 24-month program is tailored to fulfill the resident's individual interests and goals within ASHP accreditation standards. The resident(s) during the first year complete a majority of their academic training at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy while participating in PGY-1 rotations at Riverside Methodist Hospital. The second year of residency will focus on finishing PGY-1 requirements and completing PGY-2 requirements. The resident(s) actively participate in leadership activities for both operational and clinically oriented services. Longitudinal ambulatory care training enables the resident to establish individual relationships with patients and other health care professionals. With Riverside Methodist being one of 17 hospitals within the OhioHealth Health-System, the MS residents will be exposed to opportunities and challenges at a system level. This exposure creates a differentiation among residency programs. As a future pharmacy leader the resident’s experience is extended beyond one or two sites during the two years to include as many as 17 hospitals, with the most frequent exposure consisting of 8 hospitals, home infusion pharmacy, and an extensive ambulatory pharmacy network. We believe this experience creates the greatest opportunity for the resident to make a significant impact post-residency in the environment of health-system pharmacy and accountable care organizations (ACOs).
