Pharmacy Residency Program

The Department of Pharmacy at Central Washington Hospital offers an American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited PGY-1 Residency. 
The Pharmacy Residency Program is a 12-month program with two resident positions available.

  • This program enables residents to participate in evidence-based, patient-centered medication management.
  • Leadership, writing, and teaching skills are developed through clinical rotations as a member of the multidisciplinary team and by participation in administrative and operational services.
  • Competency is shaped by feedback from preceptors and from self-evaluation. Each resident's learning plan is individualized.
  • Residents are eligible for full benefits; they are required to staff every other weekend in the inpatient pharmacy.
  • Washington pharmacist licensure is required (must be completed by September 1st).
  • A major clinical or administrative project must also be completed during the course of the residency year.  Project selection is a joint effort between the resident, program director, and preceptors.

Residents develop skills to solve complex medication related problems through rotations in acute care, ambulatory care and drug policy.

  • Acute Care Rotations: Internal Medicine, Oncology, Cardiology, Intensive Care, Surgical
  • Ambulatory Care Rotations: Home Infusion, Outpatient Oncology Infusion Center
  • Longitudinal Rotations: Practice Management, Residency Project
  • Elective Rotations (2 rotations during residency year): Antimicrobial Stewardship, Administration, Advanced Oncology, Diabetes Care, Pharmacy Informatics, Anticoagulation Clinic, Ambulatory Care (refill authorization, direct patient care)
