Pharmacy Residency Program

The Pharmacy Department at Lee Health

With approximately 140 Lee Health pharmacists at four different acute hospital locations, a Regional Cancer Center, an Outpatient Infusion Center and six Community Lee Pharmacies we provide Pharmacy Services in both the inpatient and outpatients settings. Pharmacists are involved in Interdisciplinary Team Rounds in the ICUs, PICU, Cardiac, Oncology and Pediatric Oncology Units. Pharmacists also participate in Progression of Care Rounds and provide decentralized services on most patient care units. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are decentralized to all four of our Emergency Departments.

Our pharmacists play an integral role in the Medication Safety Committee, Institutional Review Committee, and Pharmacy & Therapeutic Committee. In addition, our pharmacists have an active Antimicrobial Stewardship program, provide Kinetics Dosing Services, Nutritional Support Services, and an Anticoagulation Dosing Service. Our pharmacists provide medication education to our inpatients and work with Care Management and Lee Pharmacy staff to ensure our patients have successful transitions of care upon discharge. Lee Health serves as a clinical clerkship site for colleges of pharmacy in the state of Florida as well as out-of-state colleges. APPE students are part of the Lee Health APPE block rotation program with more than 10 rotations to choose from.

The PGY-1 and PGY-2 Residency Programs will be participating in PhORCAS (Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service); a web based application system. In addition to the application requirements of PhORCAS, the application deadline will be January 3rd each year. For more information on PhORCAS visit the ASHP website.

All reference writers must complete the Standardized Reference Form in PhORCAS. In lieu of a letter of recommendation the reference writer must complete the three Narrative comment sections in PhOrCAS.
