As part of the world-class University of Michigan Health (UMH), the Department of Pharmacy Services has high standards for service, education, and research. UMH and the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy are both ranked in the top tier of institutions nationwide, and our residency program is ASHP award-winning. We strive to provide Pharmacy Residents with excellent training and educational experiences to develop practice, teaching and research skills, and nurture the pursuit of professionalism and leadership. Postgraduate pharmacy training is a deep part of our Department’s history in collaboration with the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy. The Department of Pharmacy Services established the first Pharmacy Residency Program in 1927 (previously called a postgraduate internship) under the leadership of Harvey A.K. Whitney, one of the founding members and first president of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Our Pharmacy Residency program was also among the first Accredited Pharmacy Residency Programs in the nation. We continue this legacy by providing residency programs which strive to provide each resident the opportunity to develop practice skills, expand his/her knowledge, and gain experience in an environment that promotes excellence and innovation.
We currently have 17 Pharmacy Residency Programs with 34 Pharmacy Residents, and 1-2 Fellows annually. All Pharmacy Residency Programs are fully accredited by ASHP. At UMH, you will have the opportunity to learn from some of the leading practitioners in the world. UMH integrates the outstanding services of University Hospital (a Level I trauma center), C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Von Voightlander Women's Hospital, and an ambulatory care network that provides an annual total of nearly 1.7 million patient visits.
We hope that you will consider the University of Michigan for your residency training experience!
