San Joaquin General Hospital
Welcome to the San Joaquin General Hospital PGY-1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program. SJGH is a 196-bed teaching hospital located in the Central Valley of California, just south of Stockton and about 10 minutes away from University of the Pacific. It is the oldest county-operated hospital in California, and celebrated its 150th year in 2007.
In addition to providing acute care services, the hospital operates both on-site and off-site clinics serving the population of San Joaquin County.
In addition to the PGY-1 Pharmacy program, residency training programs offered at SJGH include Internal Medicine, Family Practice, and General Surgery. The hospital is also a primary clerkship rotation site for students from University of the Pacific School of Pharmacy.
The program is designed to provide the resident with a year of intensive training in the areas of acute and ambulatory pharmacotherapy, as well as the opportunity to build skills in practice management, drug use management, communication, and education. A pharmacist completing this residency program will be prepared to assume a clinical staff position in an acute care or ambulatory setting. These pharmacists will be qualified to serve as adjunct faculty for a college of pharmacy or to pursue second year post graduate training in a focused area of practice.
