Press Releases

Meritus Medical Center’s postgraduate pharmacy residency program (PGY1) has received continued accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) for 2021.

The pharmacy residency program contributes to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions.

“Our residents completed hands-on experience in various areas of the hospital, including internal medicine, critical care, emergency medicine and outpatient oncology, as well as opportunities for learning experiences in infectious disease, pain management, pediatrics and other areas of care,” says Bobbi Hilker, Pharm.D., residency program director. “Current residents in the program have been directly involved with the health system’s COVID-19 response, especially as the vaccine products have become available for residents of our county – a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience!”

Meritus Medical Center’s pharmacy residency program has been duly accredited by ASHP since the fall of 2013.
