Eligibility & Application

Houston Methodist’s pharmacy residency programs have specific hiring processes and employee requirements.

Application Process:
Apply through PhORCAS and provide all required materials.

The initial interview is conducted via PPS or phone, and secondary interviews take place onsite.

Selection is through the National Matching Services. Once you are matched with Houston Methodist Hospital, you will receive an offer letter to sign and return to the respective residency 
program director (RPD).

Drug/Tobacco and Background Screening:
Houston Methodist is committed to improving the health of our patients, employees and community. As a health care provider, it is our responsibility to promote a healthier environment for our employees. Accordingly, effective January 1, 2013, Houston Methodist no longer hires tobacco users. Applicants will be tested for tobacco usage during the post-offer physical and drug screening. If an applicant tests positive for tobacco use or recreational drug use, the offer will be rescinded.

Onboarding and Orientation:
Residents new to Houston Methodist will spend their first month getting oriented to the hospital, pharmacy department, computer systems and residency program. If you are not already BLS- or ACLS-certified, you will complete these certifications during this time. All PGY2 residents will be asked to provide evidence of successful completion of a PGY1 program to their RPD.

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 Houston Methodist Hospital.

Annual Review Process in October:
During this period, you will complete required employee in-services, get your influenza vaccine, perform TB testing and any other pharmacy employee requirements.
