Pharmacy Residency

Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the Orlando Health Pharmacy Residency programs. The primary practice sites for our residencies are Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC), Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children (APH), Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies (WPH), and UF Health Cancer Center – Orlando Health. These hospitals are academic teaching facilities with a total of more than 1,000 beds. ORMC is home to Central Florida’s only Level I Trauma Center, as well as a regional burn center, that services Orlando and nine surrounding counties of Central Florida. APH also has a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center and WPH has a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Orlando Health also supports more than 250 medical residents and fellows on this main campus.

We currently have the following ASHP-Accredited residencies: PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency, PGY-2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency and a PGY-2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency. A PGY-2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency was started this year (July 2016) and is currently in the application process for ASHP-Accreditation.

On this site you will find detailed information on each of the four residencies as well as Orlando Health as a whole. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
