We are very excited for the upcoming application season and look forward to getting to know you. Our department offers 13 unique residency training programs, and we encourage you to explore our program pages to learn more about how each program is uniquely designed.

As part of a top-rated hospital in California which provides world class care in 150 specialties, the UC Davis Medical Center Department of Pharmacy has board certified preceptors in every specialized practice setting. We are proud to provide our residents a diverse learning experience in both the acute and ambulatory care settings, at various training sites throughout Sacramento, California. The city of Sacramento is home to a beautifully diverse community, and it is our goal to recruit a residency class that is reflective of the population we serve. The UC Davis Department of Pharmacy both prioritizes and embraces the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our residency programs. Students and residents who identify as underrepresented minorities (URM) or those with diverse individual perspectives and experiences are strongly encouraged to apply.

We participate in PhorCAS and our interviews, which will be entirely virtual again this year, are arranged by invitation. Please review the application section of our residency page for deadlines and requirements. Good luck, and we look forward to getting to know you during this process!
