To be appointed to the Billings Clinic PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Programs, applicants must:
Deadline: January 2nd. Please ensure all application items are submitted by this date.
Submit the following items through PhORCAS:
Telephone and on-site or vitrual interviews are required for each residency candidate in whom the program is interested.
For selected individuals, telephone interviews are completed by the Residency Program Director and may last up to 1 hour.
On-Site or Virtual Interviews
After much consideration regarding COVID, the program has decided to conduct all virtual interviews in place of on-site interviews for the 2022 – 2023 residency application cycle. Interviews typically last a half-day and are conducted via Microsoft™ Teams™. Residency candidates interview with different panels of individuals, including the Residency Program Director, program preceptors, current residents, pharmacy leadership, and other pharmacy staff. Billings Clinic hopes to offer some dates for on-site tours/informal visits to candidates who would like to see campus.
The PGY1 programs at Billings Clinic are designed to prepare residents to successfully pass the Board of Pharmaceutical Specialties (BPS) Pharmacotherapy examination (acute care focused residents) or Ambulatory Care Pharmacist examination (ambulatory care focused residents). Therefore, residents are provided with electronic study resources. After completion of residency, residents are encouraged to become board certified. This gives residents a goal to aspire towards and adds depth to their learning. Board certification allows residents to set themselves apart from their colleagues and become recognized as model practitioners. Reimbursement for the exam may be available.
