Why Methodist? 

Since 2001, Methodist’s PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program has provided a robust, individualized learning experience. With one residency position available each year, the resident has flexibility to customize rotations to their professional and educational goals. While based at Methodist Hospital, the resident also has opportunities to complete unique rotations like oncology at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center, perinatology at Methodist Women’s Hospital – the region’s only medical campus dedicated to women’s health – and toxicology at the Nebraska Regional Poison Center. At Methodist, we’re proud of the longevity within our department – and that many of our preceptors were former residents.   

Program Details

The resident will complete rotations as required by the Residency Advisory Committee (RAC) and will choose elective rotations to complete the program. The resident is considered a full-time, exempt employee and will accrue paid time off (PTO), be eligible for bereavement leave and be enrolled in a teaching certificate program through the Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions. The resident will also receive a travel stipend for conference costs.
