Message from the Program Director

Welcome to our program

Thank you for visiting our site and your interest in the Pharmacy Practice Residency program at AMC.  Our goal is to develop pharmacists with fundamental patient care, organizational, problem solving, and leadership skills that are critical to providing pharmaceutical care in an acute care setting. AMC provides a rich and highly supportive caring and learning environment in which the resident works and learns. Residents work closely with highly experienced pharmacists and care givers from multiple disciplines to meet patient needs.

The environment at AMC provides the opportunity to learn from, and participate in, the care of a wide variety of Complex patents. The program is highly adaptable to the individual resident’s learning needs and interests. Resident involvement in the highly collaborative, organized, and automated medication-use system at AMC promotes the development of skills that form the foundation for the next step in their careers.

I invite you to look through our website to learn more about the Pharmacy Residency and look forward to hearing from you.
