Mercy Pharmacy Residency Program

Mercy Hospital, located just north of Minneapolis, is one hospital on two campuses. With this model, we are able to offer unique PGY1 and PGY2 residency programs in community-based hospital settings.

We strive to provide a challenging and fulfilling year for you, and we have the flexibility to tailor our program to fit your needs. For this reason, the resident plays a critical role in designing the year.

Post Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) pharmacy residency programs build on Pharm.D. education and outcomes to contribute to the development of a clinical pharmacist responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
