Cleveland Clinic is comprised of a 1,400-bed academic medical center and 17 additional hospitals, including 5 in Southeast Florida. In total, there are nearly 6,000 inpatient beds and over 1,400 pharmacy employees, more than 300 physician practices, 20 ambulatory pharmacies, significant inpatient and outpatient clinical services and a pharmacy budget exceeding $1 billion.
The Pharmacy Informatics Residency (PGY-2) is a one-year training program designed to provide both experiential and didactic informatics experiences to prepare a pharmacist for a career in medical informatics.
The program offers a wide variety of projects involving implementation or optimization of features in an electronic health record and medication-use processes used by a multi-hospital health-system. Additionally, with many different types of automation in place across the health-system, opportunities are available for experience with automated dispensing systems, automated carousels, pharmacy robotics, and pharmacy workflow and inventory management systems. Required rotations will include Automation and Technology, Orders Management, Reporting and Analytics, Clinical Decision Support, Informatics Theory, and Informatics Leadership. Elective opportunities are available in specialty-focused areas such as Oncology Informatics, Ambulatory Informatics, Antimicrobial Stewardship, and Order Set Management. The resident will also lead a longitudinal research project which will involve implementing a new technology, or improving upon an existing technology, in the electronic health record or medication-use system. The Pharmacy Informatics Residency also provides the opportunity to earn a credential in the use of the medication management application in the electronic health record. The resident will participate in several multidisciplinary committees to observe and contribute to the decision making and change management processes currently in place at Cleveland Clinic. The resident will also have the opportunity to participate in journal clubs and pharmacy education conferences.

NOTE: 1. Residency applicants must currently be authorized to work in the United States. Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy does not sponsor applicants for work Visas. 2. Appointments of applicants to residency positions may be contingent upon the applicants satisfying certain eligibility requirements [e.g., graduating from accredited college of pharmacy, obtaining pharmacist license in Ohio (for Ohio sites) or Florida (for Florida sites) within 90 days of start date, and successful completion of a pre-employment physical and drug screen, including testing for cotinine]. 3. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate OPT (Optional Practical Training) Visas for the Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program as the program extends beyond 12 months. 4. The Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program does not meet the qualifications of an OPT STEM employer because Cleveland Clinic is not enrolled in E-Verify.
