Pharmacy Residency Program

A pharmacy residency at The University of Kansas Health System provides you with a unique opportunity to explore your career options alongside a practitioner in your chosen field. As a resident, you'll expand your clinical knowledge, sharpen your leadership skills, develop responsibility and scholarly relevance, and put that learning into daily practice.

To our pharmacy residency applicants

The pharmacy strives to provide quality and innovative care to each and every patient that walks through the doors at The University of Kansas Health System, and the pharmacy residency training programs are no different. The University of Kansas Health System has a long tradition of training exceptional pharmacists; since 1970 we have graduated over 250 pharmacy residents across 9 programs.

We are fortunate to have a visionary program led by exceptional leaders. The preceptors in our program have exceptional training, many as the result of our own PGY1 and PGY2 residency training programs. They have been recognized locally, both as Preceptor of the Year as voted by the residents, as well as recognized by the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy.

As The University of Kansas Health System continues to grow, so do the residency programs. We not only offer our legacy PGY1/2/MS health system pharmacy administration and leadership residency, we have grown to offer a strong clinical PGY1 residency and PGY2 specialty residencies in ambulatory care, critical care, infectious diseases, medication-use safety and policy, oncology, pharmacy informatics and psychiatry.

Joining the #KUPhamily is a lifelong commitment. Residents commit to carrying the Pharmacy Leadership Legacy principles of commitment, vision and excellence throughout their career. Preceptors commit to developing our residents to be successful in this endeavor. Our goal is to recruit individuals with hunger for clinical growth and professional potential to develop and mentor into the most sought-after pharmacy residents in the country. Graduates of our residency program will go on to define the future of the profession of pharmacy.

We look forward to meeting you during the ASHP Pharmacy Residency Match process!
