Application Process

We appreciate your interest in the OHSU PGY2 Pharmacy Informatics Residency Program. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.  A completed application and required documents are due no later than January 1st, 2018 in PhORCAS.  
How do I apply for the program?

Candidates for residency should have completed an ACPE accredited academic program in pharmacy and must be eligible for full licensure in Oregon within three months of starting the program (for licensure information, visit the Oregon Board of Pharmacy web site). PGY1 pharmacy residency training or equivalent experience is required. Candidates must provide official transcripts from all professional pharmacy education, a completed application form, a personal statement, and they must coordinate the submission of three references in PhORCAS.

Does your program require completion of a PGY1?

Our specialty residency in Pharmacy Informatics is designed as a post-graduate year 2 (PGY2) program. As such, eligible candidates must be in the process of completing or have completed the equivalent of a post-graduate year 1 (PGY1) experience. The equivalent of a PGY1 experience may be considered in lieu of a pharmacy practice residency; however, a candidate's previous experiences will be evaluated for equivalency with the goals and objectives set forth for PGY1 pharmacy residency programs. 

When are applications due?

Our application deadline is January 1st. Please have all of your materials submitted into PhorCAS. We understand that items such as pharmacy school transcripts and references may arrive later than the application deadline since you are relying on other people to complete those tasks for you. Please make sure you request them as early as possible; we do not begin reviewing applicant's files until they are complete or nearly complete.
