Residency Showcase

Students considering a residency program after graduation can get a head start connecting with current Residents and Residency Directors at the showcase Saturday, September 16th. ICHP's Residency Showcase will allow you to learn more about residency programs from around the mid-west in a smaller, less frantic forum than ASHP's Midyear Clinical Meeting.

The Cleveland Clinic Marymount Hospital Pharmacy Practice Residency (PGY-1) is one-year postgraduate training program that builds upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education. It provides residents with foundational knowledge in pharmacotherapy, operations and practice management. Graduate PGY-1 pharmacists are well qualified practitioners who are able to care for a variety of patient complexities, are eligible for board certification, and are able to continue on to specialized postgraduate year two (PGY-2) residencies. Two residency program positions will be available for 2017-2018.

The residency advisory committee tailors the residency to meet the needs and interests of the resident. Areas of training include internal medicine, infectious disease, critical care, emergency medicine, ambulatory care, drug information/medication safety, behavioral medicine, surgical medicine, and administration. In addition, residents will have the opportunity to gain teaching experience through optional participation in the NEOMED teaching certificate, serve as preceptors for APPE students, and provide drug information and in-services to clinical staff throughout the hospital.
Residents will have longitudinal involvement in the Pharmacy and Therapeutics and Medication Safety committees and will complete original research and present to the Ohio Pharmacy Residency Conference, Ohio College of Clinical Pharmacy and ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting.
