Please submit all application materials via Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service (PhORCAS).

Deadline for receipt of these materials to be considered for an on-site interview is January 1, 2022 by 11:59 p.m.

For the PGY-2 residency programs (Ambulatory Care, Cardiology, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Informatics, Investigational Drugs and Research, Medication-Use Safety and Policy, Oncology, Pediatrics, Pharmacogenomics and Solid Organ Transplant), a Pharmacy (PGY-1) Residency or equivalent experience is required.

Cleveland Clinic Health-System Residency sites agree that no person at these sites will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any residency applicant.

Note:

Residency applicants must currently be authorized to work in the United States. Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy does not sponsor applicants for work Visas.

Appointments of applicants to residency positions may be contingent upon the applicants satisfying certain eligibility requirements [e.g., graduating from accredited college of pharmacy, obtaining pharmacist license in Ohio (for Ohio sites) or Florida (for Florida sites) within 90 days of start date, and successful completion of a pre-employment physical and drug screen, including testing for cotinine].

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate OPT (Optional Practical Training) Visas for the Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program as the program extends beyond 12 months.

The Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program does not meet the qualifications of an OPT STEM employer because Cleveland Clinic is not enrolled in E-Verify.

Candidates must meet all requirements at the time of application deadline.

The Center for Health Sciences Education and Cleveland Clinic are committed to valuing all people through our organization, regardless of background or culture. A diverse and inclusive environment for students and staff and culturally appropriate care for our patients, are essential to fulfilling our vision to be the best place for care anywhere and the best place to work in healthcare. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

Leadership Opportunities

Leadership Opportunities

Chief and Assistant Chief Roles

The Chief and Assistant Chief Resident roles are excellent opportunities to develop leadership skills while supporting the residency class. Given the large number of residents at Cleveland Clinic, these roles are essential to facilitate communication between residents and the Pharmacy Residency Committee or other administrators to ensure the program continues to grow and adapt to each unique residency class.

The Chief Resident has the opportunity to collaborate and develop strong relationships with a variety of pharmacists as this position serves as the liaison between the residents and the department. The Assistant Chief Resident provides support to the Chief Pharmacy Resident throughout the year. Both roles oversee the resident-led committees. In addition to leadership and communication, these roles provide the opportunity to further develop delegation, conflict resolution, recruiting, and time management skills. The Chief Resident position is fulfilled by a PGY2 resident. Both PGY1 and PGY2 residents have the opportunity to apply for the Assistant Chief position.
