Congratulations to the 32 students from the College of Pharmacy Class of 2020 who have matched for residencies!
NEOMED students were matched at hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio, including University Hospitals - Geauga Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Akron General, MetroHealth Medical Center and Summa Health System. NEOMED students also matched at ProMedica Toledo Hospital & Children’s Hospital, as well as at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.
The pharmacy students will celebrate with a virtual event Thursday, April 23.
This year’s NEOMED grads matched at a success rate 24 percent higher than the national average for Post-Graduate Year One (PGY1) residencies. Selections were made through the recent American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Residency Matching Program.
Seven NEOMED College of Pharmacy alumni (from the Classes of 2018 and 2019) pursued specialized Post-Graduate Year Two (PGY2) training programs this year. The pharmacists had a 100% success rate, placing in programs for critical care, emergency medicine, psychiatry and pharmacy informatics.
