Letter from the DOPs
Thank you for your interest in our residency programs at Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM) and the Winship Cancer Institute (WCI). Our leadership team’s philosophy for our residents is to ensure our residents never feel as though they are “just” a resident. We strive to integrate our EUHM and WCI pharmacy residents into all aspects of the department and ensure that they have both a wide breadth of experiences as well as depth in their individual areas of interest.
We are proud to see the growth in our residency programs through the years, which we hope highlights the value we feel our programs have and how important they are to our institution. Numerous preceptors highlight how our residents bring some of the greatest joy in our own work as we have the privilege of training our next generation of clinicians and leaders.
With two major arms of the pharmacy department (inpatient and ambulatory) and two directors of pharmacy, our residents have the unique ability to experience different yet coordinated team environments and cultures.
Emory Healthcare is specifically in a state of transformational change, which makes it an excellent learning environment for future practitioners. The wealth of projects, multidisciplinary initiatives, and experiences make a tremendous impact on our resident opportunities and experiences. Our residents benefit as being a part of the Emory Healthcare system, and get to interact closely with other residents and practitioners from across the system. We pride ourselves in the standardization and coordination of our residency programs across the system.
We hope as you look further into your programs you find our preceptors to excel at mentorship and helping you find the best fit for you as you embark on your residency journey. We hope you find our culture, opportunities, and residency program structures to be a perfect fit for you!

Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University is a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, placing it in the top tier of cancer centers in the United States—and as the only one in the state of Georgia. What this means to Georgians is improved access to clinical trials and resources available only at designated cancer centers. This designation requires effective collaboration among interdisciplinary teams throughout Emory and other organizations in the Southeast and the United States. These efforts reinforce our commitment to our community and those whom we are privileged to serve.
Post-graduate year one (PGY-1) and post-graduate year two (PGY-2) pharmacy residency programs at Emory University Hospital Midtown train competent, confident pharmacists in a tertiary care setting. We offer six pharmacy residency programs, including:
