Pharmacy Residency Gives Additional Training

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A new program at Saint Vincent Healthcare in the Magic City is providing additional training for recently graduated pharmacy students.

2013 is the first year for the hospital's one-year Pharmacy Residency program, which involves a variety of training for its resident, allowing them to interact with various patients and hospital staff.

"So far, the residency's been great," said Rachel Foster. "I've been able to navigate my way around the Pharmacy, work with a lot of different clinicians, a lot of different Pharmacists here. Really getting oriented to how hospital pharmacy works."

"Once they do officially graduate from the residency program, it'll make them much more marketable," said Director of Pharmacy Lonnye Finneman. "There's many pharmacy positions now that require that you have completed a pharmacy residency in order to qualify for those positions itself."

Finneman says the program received as many as 20 applicants this year, and will undergo an accreditation survey in 2014.
