The residency is divided into two six-month blocks. All rotations are four-week blocks with the exception of Ambulatory Care and Internal Medicine, which are five-week blocks each.

The residency program has received a six-year accreditation by the Accreditation division of the American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists.
