Pharmacy residency positions (PGY1 and PGY2) are offered to applicants through the ASHP Resident Match Program (the “Match”). The Match provides an orderly process to help applicants obtain positions in residency programs of their choice, and to help programs obtain applicants of their choice. Similar matching programs are in use in many other health professions, including medicine, dentistry, psychology, podiatry, optometry, and others.
ASHP is responsible for establishing the Rules of the Match, and for monitoring the implementation of the Match. The administration and conduct of the Match is carried out by the National Matching Services Inc. on behalf of ASHP.
