Candidates applying to Intermountain Healthcare's pharmacy residency program must submit a complete application that includes PhORCAS, supplemental materials and an Intermountain Healthcare employee application.


Candidate Application and Selection

All applicants must submit the following information through the PhORCAS system: 

  1. PhORCAS standard residency application 
  2. Current curriculum vitae 
  3. Three letters of reference (at least 1 from a preceptor and 1 from a work supervisor)
  4. College of pharmacy transcripts (3.0 minimum GPA - see note below if no GPA is given)
  5. Letter of intent
  6. PGY1 hospital program only, upload as supplemental documents:

a.  Please answer the following questions (250 word limit per question):

  1. Tell us about a time that a manager or preceptor rejected one of your ideas. How did you react to their feedback?
  2. Describe how you handled a mistake you made at work or on rotation. Please explain what happened and comment on your response.
  3. Give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully communicate with a person with whom you did not particularly get along with. How did you handle the situation?

b.  Please provide a copy your Pharmacy Curriculum Outcomes Assessment (PCOA) individual score report (not scored - for data collection purposes only)


**In addition, residency candidates need to complete the on-line Intermountain Healthcare Employee Application (Search for: Pharmacist resident).


If you are graduating from a school that uses a pass/fail grading system, please submit your class rank. This is currently done outside of the PhORCAS system due to FERPA rules. If needed, we can supply a letter of request which can be forwarded to your school administration. The class rank should be sent to the incoming residency program director, Conor Hanrahan. This is required if no GPA is provided on your transcript.

Application Deadline

All application information must be received prior to 10 p.m. MST on January 5th.
