Residency Programs

Teaching the Next Generation

As an academic medical center, University Health 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.

Nurse Residency Program

The nurse residency program in partnership with Vizient is a one-year program for new graduates who are employed as staff nurses on clinical units and in ambulatory settings.

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 and UT Health San Antonio. 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.
