Residency Special Features:   Since 1964, MLH has offered a pharmacy residency program and is now comprised of a multi-site PGY1 and 5 PGY-2 training programs. Our residencies are primarily located at University Hospital, a community academic medical center affiliated with the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center (UTHSC). PGY1 residents also train at Germantown hospital, an acute care community medical center located 30 minutes from downtown Memphis. Our programs provide residents with the knowledge and skills required to become competent clinical pharmacy practitioners capable of providing pharmaceutical care in a variety of practice settings. In addition, residents are expected to complete a major project related to pharmacy practice in their area of interest, provide education to patients, pharmacy students and other health professionals in a variety of formal and informal settings, serve on various institutional committees, and participate in departmental projects. Residents from all pharmacy residency programs also participate in interactive learning sessions with preceptors, including the longitudinal pharmacy resident conference, research development series, and leadership development series. All residents have the opportunity to participate in the UTHSC Teaching and Learning Program and complete didactic lectures within the college of pharmacy.
