Residency Programs

Teaching the Next Generation

As an academic medical center, University Health System is positioned to provide pharmacy, nursing and perinatal-neonatal nursing residents with a superior clinical education and the necessary resources to successfully complete residency training.

The residency programs for BSNs bridge the gap between undergraduate education and “real life” professional nursing practice. The pharmacy residency program develops highly qualified independent practitioners and establishes a solid foundation of clinical practice.

BSN – Nursing & Perinatal-Neonatal Nursing Residency Program

The one-year BSN Nursing Residency program and the Perinatal-Neonatal Nursing Residency program are joint research projects with the University Health System Consortium and American Colleges of Nursing. Baccalaureate nursing graduates employed on clinical units are eligible.

Pharmacy Residency Program

The purpose of the postgraduate Pharmacy Residency program is to prepare pharmacists for practice in a variety of settings. Postgraduate pharmacists can choose the one-year Pharmacy residency, the two-year Critical Care Pharmacy residency, the two-year Emergency Medicine Pharmacy residency or the two-year Transplant Pharmacy residency.

Physician Residency

Medical school graduates (MDs) will find physician residency information about the partnership between University Health System and UT Health Science Center, San Antonio, School of Medicine. Physician residents who do their clinical rotations at University Health will learn about the vision, philosophy, benefits, the academic medical center environment, diversity of patient culture and more.
