Pharmacy Residency

On behalf of the Veterans Affairs (VA) Ann Arbor Healthcare System, we would like to welcome you to our healthcare system and pharmacy residency programs. The VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System offers an exciting and progressive clinical pharmacy environment with numerous learning opportunities. As a well-respected tertiary referral center affiliated with the University of Michigan, Wayne State University, and University of Toledo, we are experiencing unprecedented growth.

Deadline for applications is January 2, 2024

We care for Veterans residing in southeastern Michigan and northwestern Ohio and northern Indiana and employ over 70 dedicated clinical pharmacists providing high quality, cost-effective pharmaceutical care in a wide range of programs.

Pharmacy residency is an exciting and unique time to focus on learning and refining clinical skills. We are dedicated to providing residents with a variety of high-quality learning experiences. We believe that a residency year should be customized to the resident’s specific interests, strengths and enhancing relative weaknesses. At the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, it is our goal to guide the residents on their journey to become highly trained and independent pharmacists.

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the VAAAHS PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program is to build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives.  Residents who successfully complete PGY1 residency programs will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership, and education, and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification in pharmacotherapy (i.e., BCPS), and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.
