Houston Methodist Hospital Pharmacy Residency programs have the following hiring process and employee requirements:
Application Process: Apply through PhORCAS and provide all required materials. Admission into the MS and PGY1/PGY2 Residency in Health-System Pharmacy Administration program at Houston Methodist Hospital also entails applying to the graduate program at the University of Houston College of Pharmacy. An application roadmap has been developed to help ensure all applicants complete each required step for applying to our program. You can access this roadmap directly by visiting: http://www.uh.edu/pharmacy/prospective-students/residency-and-fellowship/ms-residency/admissions/index.php.
Interviews: Initial (PPS or phone) and secondary interviews (onsite)
Matching: Through National Matching Services.
Once you are matched with TMH, you will receive an offer letter to sign and return to the respective Residency Program Director (RPD).
Drug/tobacco and background screen: Houston Methodist is committed to improving the health of our patients, employees and communities around us. As a health care provider, it’s our responsibility to promote a healthier environment for our employees. Accordingly, effective January 1, 2013, Houston Methodist will no longer hire tobacco users. Applicants will be tested for tobacco usage during the post-offer physical and drug screen.
If an applicant tests positive for tobacco use, the offer will be rescinded.
Onboarding and Orientation: Residents new to TMH will spend their first month orienting to the hospital, pharmacy department, computer systems, and residency program. If you are not already BLS or ACLS certified, you will complete these certifications at this time. All PGY2 residents will be asked to provide evidence of successful completion of a PGY1 program to their RPD.
Licensure: You will have 90 days from your start date to become licensed in the state of Texas. It is advised to start the process once you find out you are matched with TMH.
Annual Review Process in October: During this period, you will complete required employee inservices, get your influenza vaccine, perform TB testing, and any other pharmacy employee requirements.
