Nazareth Hospital specializes in Stroke, Heart Failure, Orthopedics, and Cardiovascular Care with PCI accreditation. Acute rehabilitation, transitional care and hospice services are also located on the premises. Nazareth serves a diverse population of all ages with varied economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. This guarantees trainees exposure to a wide range of health issues.
Nazareth Hospital Pharmacy Residency Program trains our residents to assume positions as clinical pharmacists, to be eligible for post-graduate year two (PGY-2) training, and to pursue board certification. Residents will also be continually monitored for practice-based learning and professionalism. The faculty will take a team approach at correcting any resident with critical deficiencies to help guarantee their success in the program.
