Greater Heights and Southeast Residency Program Residents and PreceptorsProgram Overview

Memorial Hermann Hospital System - Greater Heights and Southeast postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency program is an ASHP-accredited program that builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education. The goal of the program is to provide the residents with the necessary skills to develop into clinical pharmacists who are responsible for the medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions. Upon completion of the program, residents are eligible for board certification and to pursue postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

The program leverages shared resources, preceptors, and rotational experiences across two hospitals. This approach ensures a well-rounded education experience for each resident, promoting competence in diverse patient populations, various disease states, advancing clinical practice, and enhancing patient outcomes. Additionally, the program places a significant emphasis on developing leadership and management skills, as well as fostering expertise in teaching, education, and knowledge dissemination.
