At Prisma Health Richland Hospital, we have offered an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists-accredited residency program in pharmacy since 1972. As an institution, we were formally known as Palmetto Health Richland. Our name may have changed, but our dedication to excellence in teaching, patient care, and research has not.
Prisma Health Richland is a 641-bed regional teaching hospital in Columbia, South Carolina, that treats patients from every county in the state. We currently offer two PGY1 pharmacy residencies and PGY2 pharmacy residencies that focus in cardiology, critical care, infectious diseases, and pediatrics. This year, we are excited to expand residency training opportunities with the addition of our seventh program - PGY2 Internal Medicine Residency 37025. This program is designed to produce a well-rounded pharmacy practitioner who is equipped to meet the needs of patients with a variety of complex medical diseases. Graduates of this program will have gained experience in a variety of disease states with a strong focus on anticoagulation, diabetes and insulin management, antibiotic stewardship, respiratory diseases, and transitions of care. The residency has pre-accreditation status with ASHP and will be accepting its inaugural resident in July 2020.
Interested candidates must have a degree from an accredited college of pharmacy (PharmD), have completed or currently be completing an American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)-accredited PGY1 residency program. They must submit the following to PhORCAS: a completed application, official transcripts, curriculum vitae, letter of intent, and three letters of recommendation. If offered an on-site interview, a 20-minute presentation is required. All applicants must participate in ASHP's residency match program. Candidates must be eligible for or have current licensure in South Carolina by July 1 (South Carolina MPJE must be passed by July 1).
