Richardson Pharmacy Residency

A message from our PGY1 Program Director:

On behalf of Methodist Richardson Medical Center, I would like to thank you for your interest in our Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program. We are a 311 bed not-for-profit hospital serving the Richardson and surrounding areas and has offered compassionate medical, surgical, and behavioral health services for more than 50 years.

We are excited to launch our pharmacy residency program this summer of 2021 with our very first resident! Our residency training program offers numerous clinical, operational, and research learning opportunities. The resident will also help precept students from several Texas colleges of pharmacy. In addition, they will also have the opportunity to earn a teaching certificate in collaboration with the University of North Texas. These experiences will allow the resident to fulfill the purpose of our program: to build upon the resident’s pharmacy education to develop the skill sets necessary to become a capable clinical pharmacist, a trained preceptor, a prepared candidate for pharmacotherapy board certification, and equipped to purse a PGY2 residency.

The resident will be trained with a group of qualified and capable preceptors who are all board certified and residency trained. We bring a wealth of experience and mentorship that will provide the resident with a supportive and meaningful residency training. Our students have stated over the years how the learning experience they received from us have helped them grow immensely personally and professionally. They were able to experience consistent and responsive availability from the preceptors, work closely with all the pharmacy staff and felt welcomed, gained great insights into how the pharmacy functions as a department, and how it fits into the institution and the system at large. We are confident that our residents will have this same enriching experience!

Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions, or if you would like to tour our facility. We understand that the pursuit of a PGY1 residency is challenging, so we wish you the very best!

Warmest Regards,
