Ascension is a Catholic healthcare organization dedicated to the transformation of healthcare through innovation. We specialize in implementation of evidence-based clinical initiatives, algorithms for care and the introduction of an integrated system-wide surveillance program to prevent patient harm. Ascension is a system of subsidiaries that collaborate to foster evidence-based practices supporting healthcare that works, healthcare that is safe and healthcare that leaves no one behind. Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and nonprofit health system, is supported by our own Group Purchasing Organization, a recognized Patient Safety Organization and driven by compassion and dedication to care for those most in need at more than 18,000 acute care patient beds in nearly 130 sites.
Ascension is unique in its health-system members, who range from critical access hospitals to large academic tertiary care institutions. The PGY2 resident will be immersed in an extensive, highly regarded and professionally diverse network of connections. The resident will collaborate to develop consensus among a diverse group of colleagues, facilitating implementation of clinical initiatives and programs, as well as measuring outcomes following implementation.
Our one-of-a-kind, intensive 24-month Pharmacy Resident Program is designed to mold the management-focused resident into an elite, highly competitive candidate for a position in health system administration. The PGY2 resident will be working in a corporate office with The Resource Group, receiving unparalleled training in the great city of St. Louis.
