Pharmacy Residency Program
Health-System Pharmacy Administration (HSPA) residents have the opportunity to gain experience and develop expertise in the provision of comprehensive pharmacy services including direct patient care services, leadership/administrative responsibilities, pharmacy operations, medication safety, quality improvement and scholarly endeavors.
History and Goals
HSPA residents from Mission Hospital will experience both the focus on population health associated with nonprofit community hospitals as well as the operational and clinical experiences associated with a large teaching hospital.
Mission Hospital HSPA residents will understand the continuum of care due to the strong relationship between the acute care and ambulatory care services. Learning experiences will primarily take place in the acute care setting with exposure to ambulatory care settings.
Residents can customize their experiences based on interests. Mission Health provides a spectrum of services for residents to participate:

- Medication safety at both the hospital and system levels
- RIVA IV robots, Pentapak® and Wet Cadet ® for drug repackaging
- Acute care pharmacy operations from a large community hospital perspective and critical access hospital perspective
- 340b drug management program
- Ambulatory care pharmacy operations for clinics and retail settings
- Clinical policy and practice management to optimize formulary and expand the integration of pharmacy services
HSPA residents will be fully immersed in the management team:
- Develop personnel management skills through managing a small group of pharmacists and technicians
- Responsible for pharmacy operations in dedicated pharmacy area(s)
- Serve as a pharmacy manager on-call with the rest of the management team
- Facilitation of local and system-level committees
