Methodist was a great place for my residency. The broad array of opportunities and emphasis on giving back to the medical community through publication and teaching prepared me to thrive no matter where I practiced.
The first resident, Max D. Ray, began the program in 1964 at Methodist Central (now Methodist University Hospital). Over the years, the program has grown from one resident per year to fifteen across multiple sites.
Each year, we select PGY-1 residents and PGY-2 specialty residents in the areas of Health-System Pharmacy Administration, Solid Organ Transplantation, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Critical Care. All PGY2 residencies are located primarily at University Hospital. PGY1 residency sites are available at both University and Germantown hospitals.
Residents are expected to:
- Complete a major project relating to pharmacy practice.
- Counsel patients on high risk medications.
- Provide formal and informal education to healthcare professionals and trainees.
- Serve on institutional and departmental committees.
- Participate in interactive learning sessions with preceptors, including the longitudinal pharmacy resident conference and research development series.
- Take part in departmental projects as needed.
