Pharmacy Residency Program

At Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, our Pharmacy Residency program focuses on providing students an opportunity to become qualified, independent practitioners able to provide excellent patient care in a variety of hospital settings.

This twelve-month postgraduate training program provides participants the opportunity to combine their knowledge with attitudes and skills needed to optimize patient outcomes and excel professionally. We will provide the leadership needed to ensure that participants leave our program with a high level of maturity and leadership, and be able to perform practice-related projects.

The resident and Program Director will develop a customized residency program plan for each resident based on resident goals and interests and opportunities available within the Covenant Health System.

We welcome your interest in our Pharmacy Residency program and hope to share with you the benefits of working with Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center.
