Talk to Residency Program Representatives
As a residency program, we are interested in enhancing the training of new practitioners. If you have any questions, representatives of the residency program attend various residency showcases throughout Kentucky and the surrounding states. Please contact your College of Pharmacy for dates of residency showcases and a list of participating programs.
We will also be available at the Residency Showcase at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting. Please refer to the ASHP website or program guide for specific dates and locations.
If you are unable to attend a residency showcase, feel free to contact the Residency Program Director or Director of Pharmacy. Their contact information can be found in the
ASHP Online Residency Directory.
As an ASHP-accredited program, we participate in the Resident Matching Program. For more information about participation agreements, match rules and a schedule of dates, please refer to the National Matching Services website.
