Pharmacy Practice Residency at Community Medical Center

Community Medical Center

This 151-bed community hospital began its residency program in July 2001. This general medicine hospital offers advanced clinical pharmacy services, including a pharmacist-managed Pain Protocol, and serves as a teaching site for students at The University of Montana Skaggs School of Pharmacy.

International Applicants:  Unfortunately we are unable to sponsor visas for international residents, as we do not have allocated resources for the visa fees.  Applications are welcome for those non-US citizens with a green card or current visa that will be valid throughout the residency year.  Applicants must have graduated from an ACPE-accredited college of pharmacy.
