What are we looking for in a potential candidate?

  • Determined, individuals who want to continue building on their pharmacy knowledge and experience.

What is there to do in Santa Rosa?

  • Our location in Sonoma County offers a unique experience and opportunity to our residents that give them a variety of activities to do on their off time. From hiking in the redwoods, to rafting on the Russian River; from wine tasting in wine country to sight-seeing in San Francisco, the location offers a wide array of offerings that will ensure that you are never bored (at least when you’re not working on residency projects)

What other certifications are available?

  • ACLS/BLS and PALS certification will be covered by the program. ACLS/BLS will be required to finish the program. PALS must be completed if the resident chooses to pursue a pediatric rotation.

Do residents attend professional conferences?

  • The residency program encourages participation in professional conferences where residents can promote the program, explore PGY-2 opportunities, and network with pharmacists in other fields. These conferences will be covered by the program and are considered an expectation of the residents.

How is staffing incorporated into the residency program?

  • Staffing allows residents to gain proficiency in pharmacy operations and gain confidence working as an independent pharmacist and is an integral part of any residency experience. Staffing will be done by the residents every other weekend once both residents are licensed.

Where are our previous residents now?

  • As a new program, we do not have many past residents, however, among our previous residents, we have had one continue onto a PGY-2, and another that has become a clinical specialist.
