A combined 25 students from all four TTUHSC Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy campuses were successfully matched.

Fourth-year Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy students interested in completing a residency after they graduate in May, learned Wednesday (March 13) where they would spend the next stage of their training during the Pharmacy Residency Match Day.

“A pharmacy residency is a post-graduate training program designed to provide knowledge and experience that pharmacy providers need in order to face challenges in today's complex and ever-changing health care environment,” Krystal Edwards, Pharm.D., professor and associate dean for career development, said. “First-year residencies help train pharmacy practitioners by building upon their pharmacy schooling skills and professional identity; second year residencies foster growth and development of a specialized skill set in a specific area.”

A total of 5,690 fourth-year pharmacy students from across the country applied for one-year postgraduate year (PGY-1) residency programs, and 74.7% were successfully matched. A combined 32 students from all four TTUHSC Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy campuses participated in the program; 25 students were successfully matched.
