Program Overview

Our Mission

The Pharmacy Practice Residency at Mary Washington Hospital is a one-year training program designed to strengthen the residents’ clinical, communication, and management skills in preparation for a continued career in hospital pharmacy, clinical pharmacy, or pharmacy management. Our focus is on transitioning residents from students of pharmacy to experienced pharmacists who provide exceptional patient care in an ever-changing profession. The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency conducted by Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, VA has an accreditation pre-candidate status with ASHP.

The weeks of ASHP’s Midyear and the Eastern States Conference are designated for the residents to attend and focus on those events; residents will not be staffing or on rotations during those two weeks.
