Pharmacy Residency

Research & Education > Education > Pharmacy Residency

TriHealth offers four pharmacy residency programs:

Each program has a 12-month curriculum designed to provide residents the opportunity to garner experiences beyond the entry-level education of a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. The calendar year is comprised of required and elective rotations, as well as longitudinal experiences. Residents will work with the Residency Program Director to establish an individualized learning plan consistent with his or her career goals. Additional opportunities for research, teaching, and professional travel are in place.
