Mobile Infirmary's Pharmacy Practice residency is a one-year program that builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education to develop clinical pharmacists responsible for medication‐related care of patients with a wide range of conditions. Graduates of the program are eligible for board certification and eligible for PGY2 pharmacy residency training. Infirmary Health is proud to announce that the program has recently received reaccreditation for an eight-year term by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).

Residency accreditation is an important driver for excellence, serving as a bridge between education and practice. The ASHP requires adherence to a strict set of practices and compliance is reviewed during regular site surveys. Receiving accreditation for an eight-year term indicates strong leadership, hard work, and dedication by the leadership of the preceptors of the pharmacy residency.

ASHP is the only nationally-recognized, non-governmental, non-profit pharmacy association that has been accrediting pharmacy residencies since 1962 and pharmacy technician training programs since 1983.

Infirmary Health began offering post-graduate training opportunities for pharmacists in 2005. The pharmacy residency experience is rigorous and time intensive; consisting of ten rotations, a residency research project and manuscript, and several other longitudinal projects designed to evaluate and optimize patient care at Infirmary Health and meet the goals and objectives of residency training set forth by ASHP’s accrediting standards.
