Note from the Director

Maintaining our Mission

Members of the St. Cloud Hospital Residency Program believe in the benefits of creating a culture of teamwork. We strive to be true to this mission and have constructed aspects of our residency program to cultivate collaboration within our residency class and preceptor group. Examples of this include our annual day-long residency retreat (with all preceptors and residents) focused on resident and preceptor development sessions and team building exercises. Throughout the year, residents work with the Residency Program Director to create fun pharmacy outings by participating in our Residency Emotional Support Team (REST) committee. Lastly, our block rotational experiences are designed to allow many preceptors and clinical staff to collaborate to affect resident day-to-day development. We believe the St. Cloud Hospital Residency Program is a challenging, multifaceted and fulfilling residency experience made possible by our team approach to learning and training. Come join our pharmacy team!
