Title: 2017 ASHP Match for Nesbitt School of Pharmacy

Congratulations to all of the P4s who successfully matched in this year's American Society of Health System Pharmacy's PGY1 residency match. Nationally, there were 3,497 PGY1 residency positions offered and 5,160 applicants. Sixty-eight percent of those who applied for residencies were matched with a program.

In 2017, Wilkes continued to match students seeking residency training at a rate above the national average. Following the second round, 19 graduating P4 students were successfully matched into PGY1 residency training programs; a 76% match rate. Additionally, for graduates from the Class of 2016 currently in a PGY1 residency and pursuing PGY2 training, 100% of those who sought specialty training were successfully matched to a program. Their specialties will include Oncology, Ambulatory Care, and Critical Care pharmacy practice.

The Faculty, Staff, and Administrators at the School of Pharmacy are proud of each and every one of our graduates. We are always eager to hear of your successes and hope to celebrate them with you. If you see these graduating P4s, please congratulate them on continuing their training.
