MountainView Hospital recently announced its third class of Pharmacy residents for the Pharmacy Residency Program beginning in July 2020.

The announcement was made during the annual Phase I of the Match results day - when postgraduate year one or two pharmacy students learn where they will be spending the next year or two as pharmacy residents.

The talented group of eight residents will be the third class of postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residents at MountainView Hospital.

MountainView Hospital's Pharmacy Residency Program received 79 applicants for eight positions. All eight PGY-1 positions were filled by matching with eight of their top candidates, along with one PGY-2 position, through the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) National Matching Services.

"We look forward to welcoming our third class of Pharmacy residents," said Stephen Chromi, Residency Program Director at MountainView Hospital. "Our program continues to develop and provide highly specialized and diverse rotations that aren't always present or easy to find all in one program. Every year our well-experienced clinical pharmacist preceptors and leadership staff strive to create a rich residency experience."

This year, 7,429 applicants enrolled in the Match for PGY1 pharmacy positions and 6,083 applicants participated in the Match, according to an official summary report of Phase I Match for positions beginning in 2020 provided by ASHP.

The ASHP is responsible for establishing the rules of the Match and monitoring the Match. The administration and conduct of the Match is carried out on behalf of ASHP by National Matching Services Inc.

MountainView Hospital's Pharmacy Residency program is separate from the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium and is solely based at MountainView Hospital.
