MountainView Hospital welcomed its fourth class of pharmacy residents this week.

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 second year of welcoming a PGY-2 pharmacy resident to MountainView Hospital’s Pharmacy Residency Program.

“We are excited to welcome our fourth class of Pharmacy residents,” said Stephen Chromi, Pharmacy Residency Director at MountainView Hospital. “Our programs provide a variety of highly specialized rotations that aren’t always found or easily accessible in one program. The diverse backgrounds of our clinical pharmacist preceptors from around the country make the residency program rich through their wide range of experiences.”

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

“We welcome our fourth class of pharmacy residents to MountainView Hospital and look forward to furthering our culture of putting our patients first,” said Julie Taylor, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “Our pharmacy program continues to thrive and the pharmacy resident classes have increased since the inaugural class. This is just one aspect of how our hospital is maturing as a teaching institution, while training the next generation of pharmacists of our community.”

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