The PGY1/PGY2 residency program allows the resident the opportunity to expand his/her clinical knowledge portfolio while participating in key health system leadership initiatives.
During the first year, the resident will be at one of the affiliate CHS Hospitals: Tennova Healthcare – Lebanon. The resident will focus developing key clinical skills while being introduced to health care administration topics.
During the second year, the resident will share his/her time between experiences at the CHS corporate office and Tennova Healthcare. The partnership between the corporate office and the hospital allows the resident to experience two fundamental pharmacy leadership positions to prepare the resident for administration positions post-residency.
