Program Overview

Memorial Hermann The Woodlands is one-year postgraduate training residency program with candidate status which consists of rotations throughout a variety of practice areas that are designed to provide the resident with the skills necessary to practice as a clinician in a health system setting.

The program is located at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands which is a 397-private bed, full-service, comprehensive, acute care facility. While the program focuses on enhancing patient care skills, residents will have the opportunity to develop their teaching and precepting skills through the University of Houston College of Pharmacy teaching certificate program as well as on rotation with students in their clinical clerkships. A continuing education presentation and major research project is required and selected based on the resident's interest and availability. The program encourages residents to pursue their professional interests while becoming well-rounded clinicians by providing them with the flexibility to directly design their residency year schedule.
