Pharmacy Practice Residency

Welcome to the CHRISTUS Spohn Health System PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program. On behalf of myself, our preceptors, and the entire Department of Pharmacy Services, thank you for your interest in our program. Our mission is to provide safe and rational pharmaceutical care to all patients every day, thereby extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Some qualities we look for in prospective residents are self-motivation, eagerness to learn, pride in the profession of pharmacy, and dedication to providing the best care to our patients. Our 12 month program is dedicated to producing well-rounded pharmacists who are committed to their patients and adept at problem solving. The program has required rotations, but also allows residents the flexibility to customize their PGY1 year based on individual interests.

Best regards in your residency pursuit,
Karlye Trevino, PharmD, BCPS
PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program Director
