TUH’s first pharmacy residency program was founded in 1969, and its graduates have gone on to successful careers in ambulatory care, critical care, infectious diseases, SOT, and academia, among others. There are currently 5 PGY1 pharmacy residents who gain clinical experience at both the TUH and Jeanes Hospital campuses. The PGY2 SOT pharmacy resident will have opportunities to gain clinical experience at both these campuses as well. This program will further enhance their clinical skills and knowledge through participation on the multidisciplinary transplant team.
