Marshall Health’s pharmacy residency program receives accreditation

5/8/2020


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. –Marshall Health’s pharmacy residency program has earned accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).  The designation is granted to post-graduate year-one pharmacy residency programs that meet rigorous criterion for learning experiences during the program.

“We are proud to offer an accredited residency program for Pharm.D. graduates who want to pursue additional training in advanced patient care services,” said Jeffrey A. Fenerty, R.Ph., director of pharmacy services at Marshall Health.

Marshall Health’s residency program provides 12 months of experience in Marshall Health’s community retail pharmacy and through Marshall Health clinical rotations including family medicine, internal medicine, oncology, neurology and psychiatry. The residents are guided by pharmacy preceptors, Marshall Health physicians and Marshall School of Pharmacy faculty. They also complete a research project and have elective rotation options such as pharmacy management.

Marshall Health’s pharmacy residency program has been operating under provisional accreditation since it began in 2017. It has two residency slots available each year with matches determined through a national match program sponsored by the ASHP.
