Career Opportunities Pharmacy Residency

Pharmacy Residency

The Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program at Rapid City Hospital accepts three residents each year who begin in late June. Residents are full-time and benefit-eligible, and have the opportunity to conduct/present research and receive a teaching certificate through South Dakota State University. Preceptors tailor the program to meet residents’ individual goals. Our residents love working in the Black Hills, a mecca for outdoor recreation and beautiful scenery. The opportunities this region offers to experience nature and be active allow our pharmacists to enjoy a wonderful work/life balance.

PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training. For additional information, please contact Katie M. Hayes, PharmD, BCPS, Clinical Pharmacist and Pharmacy Residency Program Director at (605) 755-0212 or khayes@regionalhealth.org.

How to Apply

All resident positions are offered through the ASHP Resident Matching Program. Applications are accepted from November through January, and applicants are selected for onsite interviews in February. Interested candidates should apply through the Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service.
