LENGTH OF RESIDENCY:
CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System (CSRHS), one of the top healthcare organizations in South Central Texas, has hospitals located on four campuses.
The City Centre campus combines San Antonio's first children's hospital, an academic teaching facility affiliated with the University of Texas, Health Science Center at San Antonio, with an adult community hospital. The Medical Center campus combines acute care and transplant services with rehabilitation services. The facilities offer an extensive medical staff, teaching and non-teaching, several primary care and specialty health clinics, and an array of community outreach services. CSRHS serves as a major teaching facility for the University of Texas, Health Science Center at San Antonio Pediatric Medical Residency Program and the CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency Program. Furthermore, the Department of Pharmacy has built relationships with University of Texas College of Pharmacy and the University of the Incarnate Word College of Pharmacy which serve to benefit both the hospitals and the residents.
The residency program incorporates many aspects of clinical pharmacy practice by offering a broad spectrum of experiences. Residents have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of services including pharmacokinetics, formulary management, medication safety programs, and continuous quality improvement initiatives. Some of the required rotations during the residency year include pediatric critical care, pediatric hematology/oncology, neonatology, and family medicine.
CSRHS has been named one of America's 50 Best HospitalsTM for 2009 by HealthGrades, the nation's leading independent health care ratings company. CSRHS is in the top one percent of all hospitals in the nation based on quality outcomes. This recognition is based on CSRHS earning the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical ExcellenceTM for six consecutive years.
Finally, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System is the only faith-based, not-for-profit health care system in San Antonio. The hospitals offer diagnostic and treatment facilities that support good health for the mind, body, and spirit.
