Saint Joseph Hospital

Saint Joseph Hospital Pharmacy Residency (PGY-1)

Hello and thank you for your interest in our residency program! Located in the heart of downtown Denver, Saint Joseph Hospital (SJH) is the oldest, private teaching hospital in Colorado. As a PGY-1 pharmacy residency program, we aim to produce pharmacy practitioners who are able to assume leadership roles upon graduation. The residency has a clinical focus and the resident will come away with an extensive health-system knowledge base. This residency will also provide a foundation for further training in a specialized residency or fellowship.

Pharmacists completing SJH’s PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency will be efficient and effective members of the healthcare team in both inpatient and ambulatory settings. They will be expected to be both competent and confident in the provision of information to fellow pharmacists and technicians, pharmacy students, attending and resident physicians, other healthcare professionals, patients and community members, and they will be advocates of patient safety within the institution. The Residents will monitor their performance and professional development throughout the year using formal evaluation tools and will be accountable for developing professional maturity, optimizing drug therapy, and enhancing medication use policies which will increase their future marketability as a pharmacy professional.

All candidates must provide the following to the Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service (PhORCAS) system by the application deadline:

  • Letter of Intent
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Pharmacy school transcripts

All complete applications will be reviewed by the Residency Program Director and the Residency Advisory Committee. The candidates selected will be contacted with interview dates and time options.
