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. Didactic work at The Ohio State University affords opportunity for networking with the vast OSU alumni and Latiolais Leadership Program. . Residents will gain exposure to a true health-system environment as part of the OhioHealth care system composed of 11 hospitals and 20 ambulatory sites. This exposure to health-system management creates a differentiation among residency programs. To enhance their leadership experiences, the resident is asked to be an active member of the leadership team and pursue activities which will collectively impact the practice of pharmacy within the OhioHealth system. 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).
Fringe Benefits:   Gratis meals and parking, travel allowance for regional residency conference, ASHP Leadership Conference and ASHP Midyear Meeting, pharmacy continuing education, OhioHealth Corporate discounts and time away pay equivalent to a full time employee. Full medical insurance packages are available through OhioHealth medical plans. Full tuition reimbursement included with the 24-month administrative residency.
Special Requirements for Acceptance:   PharmD or equivalent experience and eligibility for licensure in Ohio, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, official college transcripts (as well as acceptance to The Ohio State University Graduate School College of Pharmacy), and letter of intent addressing short term (2-5 years) and long term (10 years) goals as well as areas of practice of most interest to you.
