Bristol Regional Pharmacy Residency Details

Bristol Regional Medical Center pharmacy residency program was established in 2011. The 12-month ASHP post-graduate program is designed to provide two residents each year with the knowledge, abilities, experience and critical thinking skills necessary to become clinical pharmacists in any health system. The program is structured to tailor the learning experience to the individual needs of each resident.

The pharmacy residency provides experience in a variety of settings including direct patient care, medication safety and practice management while also allowing flexibility to meet individualized preferences. 

Upon completion of the program, the resident will be ready to apply his or her skills in direct patient care, exhibit excellent decision-making skills, and provide education and leadership in the care of patients. The resident will also be prepared to enter into a PGY-2 program if desired.
