We are a comprehensive health care network offering an integrated delivery model for patient care. Comprised of five hospitals and numerous clinics, we serve an approximate population base of 275,000 spread over a geographic area that stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Cascade Mountains.

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is conducted at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center which is the largest hospital in our system, as well as the flagship of the organization. Located in Corvallis, Oregon, Good Sam is licensed to operate 188 beds and is a Level II Trauma Center. With more than 22 medical specialties located on one campus, Good Sam offers patients a comprehensive level of care.

Pharmacy services are equally comprehensive. We operate five inpatient pharmacies, four retail pharmacies and a home infusion pharmacy. Additionally, we manage a pharmacist-run anticoagulation program and ESA program, as well as the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program.

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is designed to help the resident learn comprehensive patient care in the following settings: acute care, which includes cardiology, intensive care, pharmacokinetics, oncology and infectious diseases. It will also prepare the resident to become a clinical pharmacist in an ambulatory care setting providing anticoagulation management and other disease state management of chronic diseases including, but not limited to, anemia, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and heart failure.

Residents completing this program will be expected to achieve the following skills:


  • Provide evidence-based, patient-centered medication therapy management with interdisciplinary teams (patient care)
