Clinical Resource Hub Pharmacy Residency Program
The CRH is a VISN-owned and governed program that provides support to increase access to VHA clinical services for Veterans when local facilities have gaps in care or service capabilities. In the VISN 20 CRH, there are currently 20 Clinical Pharmacist Practitioners, 4 Outpatient Clinical Pharmacists, and 2 Clinical Pharmacy Technicians serving Veterans in all 8 VA Medical Centers. VISN 20 encompasses Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska.
PGY2 Program Purpose (ASHP):
PGY2 residency programs build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives for advanced practice areas. Residents who successfully complete PGY2 residency programs are prepared for advanced patient care or other specialized positions, and board certification in the advanced practice area, if available.
Our CRH residency training experiences will provide the diverse perspective of care delivery across multiple VA Health Systems to produce inquisitive Clinical Pharmacist Practitioners with virtual care expertise who set the standard for effective and flexible healthcare delivery to underserved Veteran populations.
