Recruiting for the 2021-2022 PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Class

UVA Health will be participating in the virtual ASHPs Midyear 2020 Residency Showcase.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, as well as the recent changes to the recruitment process this year, we will be hosting several informational sessions over video conference in the near future. The purpose of these sessions will be to provide a general overview of the pertinent pharmacy residency programs while also allowing interested parties opportunities to ask questions. Times and dates will be varied in order to try and accommodate as many different situations as possible. Please utilize the sign-up links listed below to register for an informational session. We welcome all interest in our residency program. However, at this time, sign-ups are limited to current PharmDs and P4 students. In order to be courteous to all interested applicants, participation is limited to one session per person. A Zoom link will be sent to your provided email the day before your registered session. Thank you!
