Pharmacy Residency Program
Great Care starts with providing great experience to the future of health care, and the Lima Memorial Pharmacy Residency Program is no exception. Established in 2015, the Lima Memorial Pharmacy Residency Program was first accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in 2016. The purpose of the pharmacy residency is to build on PharmD education and expand clinical skills. This one-year program offers comprehensive and dynamic educational experiences across various patient care settings.
The residency program is characterized by its longitudinal rotations encompassing administration, anticoagulation clinic, diabetes management, drug information, leadership, operations, research and participation in the Teaching and Learning Certificate (TLC) Program at Ohio Northern University. The core learning experiences provide residents with a solid foundation in cardiology, critical care, infectious diseases, internal medicine and outpatient infusion. Additionally, residents can tailor their experience through elective learning experiences, including academia, ambulatory care, informatics, oncology and more.
