Pharmacy Residency Program

Welcome to the San Joaquin General Hospital PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency Program. SJGH is a 150 bed teaching hospital located in the Central Valley of California, just south of Stockton and about 10 minutes away from University of the Pacific. It is the oldest county-operated hospital in California with over 160 years of service to the community.

San Joaquin General Hospital is a Level II Trauma Center and a Certified Stroke Center that provides acute care services to a diverse patient population. The hospital also operates both on-site and off-site clinics serving the residents of San Joaquin County.

In addition to the PGY-1 Pharmacy program, residency training programs offered at SJGH include Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, and General Surgery. The hospital is also a primary clerkship rotation site for students from University of the Pacific School of Pharmacy.

The program is designed to provide the resident with a year of intensive training in the areas of acute and ambulatory pharmacotherapy, as well as the opportunity to build skills in practice management, drug use management, communication, and education. The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists who are responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY-2) pharmacy residency training.
