Pharmacy Practice Residency Program

The ACMC Pharmacy Practice Residency (PGY-1) will prepare graduates to practice as acute care clinical and staff inpatient pharmacists, adjunct faculty, or to enter a specialty residency or fellowship. Two residency positions are available each year, and ACMC will pursue ASHP’s residency program accreditation.

Ashtabula County Medical Center is Ashtabula County’s only full-service community hospital. Each year, the hospital discharges just over 7,500 patients, performs approximately 8,200 surgeries, treats over 34,000 patients in the Emergency Department, and delivers approximately 400 babies. ACMC also offers a skilled nursing unit, behavioral medicine unit, oncology and infusion center, a multiple-specialty employed physician group with over 75 providers, and four Express Care locations for minor illness and injuries. ACMC is a Certified Stroke Center, receiving a 2017 Gold Plus award from American Heart and American Stroke Associations. The ACMC Healthcare System also includes Glenbeigh, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility with 113 inpatient beds and transitional housing in Rock Creek, Ohio, as well as six outpatient centers.

The Department of Pharmacy at ACMC provides 24-hour inpatient and home-going prescription services. The department is responsible for all medication use processes at the hospital, utilizing Epic, Pyxis, and KitCheck as primary technologies to assist with medication safety.

Residents will assist in implementing and enhancing pharmacy services, while developing additional skills to become integral parts of the interdisciplinary healthcare team. Residents will have an opportunity to teach medical and nursing in-services as well as serve as co-preceptors for introductory and advanced pharmacy students. Academia rotations and a teaching certificate may also be available through local colleges of pharmacy.

In addition to clinical activities, residents will complete a major research project, which will be presented at local and national pharmacy meetings. Residents will also have an opportunity to attend and participate in local and state conferences during the residency year.
