OhioHealth strives to continuously grow our residency opportunities and experiences.

We believe OhioHealth has an organizational model that is representative of the future of healthcare. A large percentage of pharmacy professionals will likely practice in a health-system that resembles our organization. Training in an environment like this will prepare a resident for the challenges and benefits of health-system pharmacy and give them advanced experiences that can then be directly leveraged.

Pharmacy Residencies are offered at OhioHealth Doctors Hospital and OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, OhioHealth Marion General Hospital and OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital. 

OhioHealth roots all of our residency programming firmly in the accreditation standards of ASHP and we continually review those standards to assure there is alignment and relevance. We continually evaluate our alignment to those goals and objectives through self-assessment and leadership team review, comments and guidance from ASHP accreditation surveyors and, most importantly, the feedback from our residents and graduates. We strive to maintain a continual state of accreditation readiness in our residency programs, much like we approach other regulatory organizations that have oversight of our health-system.
