Pharmacy Residency Program

PGY1/2 Administrative Residency

Comprehensive learning

The Health-System Pharmacy Administration (HSPA) pharmacy residency programs at OhioHealth are 24-month programs that offer combined PGY1 and PGY2 residency in addition to a Master of Science (MS) degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences with specialization in Health-System Pharmacy Administration from The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy.

Program Overviews

These programs — offered at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital and OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital — build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) eductation and outcomes in the delivery of patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services.

Residents are prepared to assume high level managerial, supervisory and leadership responsibilities.


The 24-month Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership (HSPAL) residency program at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital and OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital is tailored to fulfill residents’ individual interests and goals within ASHP accreditation standards.

During the first year, residents will complete much of their academic training at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, while participating in both clinical and administrative rotations.


Didactic work at The Ohio State University affords opportunities for networking with the Ohio State alumni and Latiolais Leadership Program. Residents will gain exposure to a true health system environment as part of the OhioHealth care system, which is comprised of 12 hospitals and 200 ambulatory sites. This exposure to health system management differentiates our residency program.

HSPAL residents are active members of the leadership team and pursue activities that will collectively impact the practice of pharmacy. We believe this experience creates the greatest opportunity for residents to make a significant impact after their residency in the environment of health system pharmacy and accountable care organizations.
