Pharmacy Residency Program

Carroll Hospital Center is located 25 miles northwest from Baltimore in Westminster, Maryland. It is the only hospital in Carroll County and provides a wide range of both inpatient and outpatient services to its patients.

Carroll Hospital's 1-year pharmacy residency program provides a concentrated learning experience equivalent to approximately 3 to 5 years of professional experience in the field. The program received its initial accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Commission on Credentialing in 2011. This national designation recognizes the program for meeting the highest standards of quality education for pharmacists seeking additional training in their field.

Program purpose:

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists. Residency-trained clinical pharmacists are responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
