MountainView Hospital matched its fifth class of pharmacy residents recently.

The talented group of nine residents is comprised of eight postgraduate year one (PGY-1) pharmacy residents and one postgraduate year two (PGY-2) resident. This is the third year of welcoming a PGY-2 pharmacy resident to MountainView Hospital’s Pharmacy Residency Program.

“Our outreach efforts have continued to have great success expanding the colleges we recruit from.  This year, we include residents from Xavier University in New Orleans, Drake University in Iowa, as well as first-time recruits from regionally local colleges of University of Southern California, Western University, Midwestern University, and Chapman University.  Our seasoned pharmacist preceptors are very excited about this new group of trainees!” said Stephen Chromi, Pharmacy Residency Director at MountainView Hospital.

The new class of residents will join the MountainView Hospital campus in July to begin their year of PGY-1 or PGY-2 training.

“Our pharmacy program continues to expand and grow along with our students,” said Matt Cova, MountainView Hospital Interim Chief Executive Officer. “MountainView’s positive reputation for its pharmacy training program allows us to recruit the best students from across the country, allowing for diversity in backgrounds and ideas, only enhancing the education process.”

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