Valley Health Pharmacy Residency Program
The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is conducted by Valley Health and the School
of Pharmacy at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia. Rotations
are completed at Winchester Medical Center, a progressive, 455-bed regional
medical center and Warren Memorial Hospital, a 196-bed acute care hospital.
The mission of the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program at Valley Health is
to enable residents to become independent practitioners and be confident
in practicing in a variety of health care settings. The emphasis of this
residency is on the impact of pharmacists and pharmacy leadership on patient
care in the hospital setting, through a multidisciplinary approach. Residents
gain an appreciation for providing community service as an integral part
of the program and the importance of providing education to patients and
health care professionals. With our affiliation with Shenandoah University,
the residents are able to participate in a teaching certificate program
and gain experience in lecturing, as well as precepting pharmacy students.
Additional opportunities for direct patient care in the ambulatory care
setting are available.
