The Cardiology Residency (PGY-2) is a one-year training program designed to develop an expert-level practitioner with the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities for specialized practice in cardiology.
For the 26th consecutive year, Cleveland Clinic’s heart program has ranked as the best in the nation, earning the No. 1 ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s “2020-2021 Best Hospitals.”
The Cardiology Residency program offers a variety of opportunities that allow the resident to develop the clinical skills necessary for acute care cardiology, cardiovascular critical care, and to optimize patient care outcomes. Areas of focus include clinical cardiology, coronary ICU, heart failure/heart transplant, cardiothoracic surgery intensive care unit, and ambulatory cardiovascular care. The resident can choose from a number of elective rotations to build and enhance competencies. The residency fosters development of an independent practitioner with the ability to thrive in a variety of practice settings. In addition to completing a research project and drug use evaluation, the resident will hone their skills through clinical staffing and presenting in pharmacy education conference and other settings, as well as participation in hospital committees.

Interested applicants must be PharmD graduates of accredited college of pharmacy, be eligible for licensure in the State of Ohio (or Florida if applicable), and submit the standard application materials through PhORCAS (i.e. Letter of Intent, CV, the 3 standard reference forms in PhORCAS, official college transcripts), along with:
We request a minimum of one (two is preferred) of your three references should come from a preceptor who you have worked with in a clinical setting, related to a PGY1 rotation in acute or ambulatory care. The clinical preceptor should be able to comment on your scope of responsibility, total patient load, level of autonomy, clinical abilities, and organizational and time management skills. All 3 reference writers should use the standard PhORCAS template to submit their candidate recommendation.
A response to the following essay statement is required for acceptance. The essay response should be no longer than one page in length. An application will not be reviewed if this statement is missing. Please note that the essay is separate from your letter of intent. Reflecting on your PGY1 residency rotations, please provide a piece of critical feedback you have received from one of your preceptors on a direct patient care rotation. Explain how you have incorporated this feedback into your practice and/or worked to improve in this area.
Please submit all application materials via Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service (PhORCAS). Deadline for receipt of these materials to be considered for an on-site interview is January 1, 2021 by 11:59 PM. For the PGY-2 residency programs (Ambulatory Care, Cardiology, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Informatics, Medication-Use Safety and Policy, Oncology, Pediatrics and Solid Organ Transplant), a Pharmacy (PGY-1) Residency or equivalent experience is required. Cleveland Clinic Health-System Residency sites agree that no person at these sites will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any residency applicant.
Residency applicants must currently be authorized to work in the United States. Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy does not sponsor applicants for work Visas.
Appointments of applicants to residency positions may be contingent upon the applicants satisfying certain eligibility requirements [e.g., graduating from accredited college of pharmacy, obtaining pharmacist license in Ohio (for Ohio sites) or Florida (for Florida sites) within 90 days of start date, and successful completion of a pre-employment physical and drug screen, including testing for cotinine].
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate OPT (Optional Practical Training) Visas for the Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program as the program extends beyond 12 months.
The Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program does not meet the qualifications of an OPT STEM employer because Cleveland Clinic is not enrolled in E-Verify.
