Pharmacy Residency Program Information

Pharmacy residencies allow a licensed pharmacist to apply the knowledge and skills learned in school to real patients, situations, and settings. You will also be exposed to different facets of practice and learn about the many and varied career paths available to pharmacists today.




Purpose Statement:

The purpose of this program is to develop pharmacists’ skills in disease state management, pharmacy operations, and quality improvement.  Under expert guidance, our residents will build foundational clinical skills in a variety of settings which may include Primary Care, Anticoagulation, Mental Health, Substance Abuse treatment, and Diabetes Clinic settings.  Upon completion, residents will be qualified for primary care practice or prepared for PGY-2 training to specialize further.  Graduates of the program will be prepared to excel in Primary Care, Patient Safety, Formulary Management, Pharmacy Operations, and Leadership. This program aims to develop well-rounded, thoughtful, and proficient pharmacists who are equipped for life-long learning and success. 

VA SORCC has two PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Residency positions available (NMS Code 274013)


Pharmacy Practice Residency Program Information

The Department of Veterans Affairs Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Center & Clinics (VA SORCC) PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency is an exciting newly accredited program; our first Pharmacy Resident Class was July 2019 – June 2020.  For many years, our staff have trained Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Pharmacy Students, and Pharmacy Residents from other programs.  We leverage that experience into a unique clinical education program with ample opportunity for exposure in Ambulatory Care and Mental Health. Utilizing tele-medicine to provide patient care has been an additional strategy we have embraced over the past couple of years.  We are proud to offer excellent work-life balance that blends practical patient care experience, advanced training in disease state management, and pharmacy operations with a holistic training philosophy.
