The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program at San Joaquin General Hospital is an ASHP-accredited program that prepares pharmacists for leadership roles within the profession. The program is designed to provide a solid foundation in pharmaceutical care, while focusing heavily on basic principles of personal and professional leadership.
In addition to direct patient care in the acute and ambulatory settings, special emphasis is placed on quality improvement, formulary management, teaching, and communication. It is our goal as preceptors to nurture in our residents the knowledge, skill, insight, and commitment that will enable them to raise the level of practice wherever they work. As a result of having completed the SJGH PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency, graduates will be better able to bring out the best in themselves and in others.
Salary & Benefits
The pharmacy resident is hired on a one-year contract basis. The salary for the 2019-2020 academic year is approximately $51,000. Residents may choose from the same options of comprehensive health, vision, and dental benefits that are offered to all San Joaquin County employees. A generous allotment of holidays and vacation days is also provided.
Because involvement in professional associations is highly emphasized, reimbursement is provided for expenses related to registration and travel to CSHP Seminar and the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, as well as to the Western States Residency Conference.
