Residency Special Features:   Residency Special Features: The Pharmacy Residency Program at Virginia Mason, an integrated healthcare system, is an accredited PGY1 program with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). The program is designed to provide pharmacists with clinical and administrative expertise in all aspects of pharmacy practice. Four to six week-long required rotations, elective rotations, and longitudinal experiences provide structure and guidance, but also flexibility, to individualize training in a progressive pharmacy practice environment. Each resident is expected to complete at least two major projects in conjunction with department and/or medical center priorities. Projects will be presented at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, regional residency conference, and local meetings. Residents will also actively participate in the P&T committee. The program also provides ample opportunity for professional development, leadership, and management training. We also offer a paid early start program to allow the resident to start training and orientation before the official start of the program.
Fringe Benefits:   The resident receives health insurance, sick leave, paid vacation, meal allowance and professional travel reimbursement.
