The History of The Ohio State Residency Program
The Ohio State University has a nearly 60-year history of excellence in training residents, beginning with the hospital pharmacy residency started in 1959 by the late former director Dr. Clifton J. Latiolais. Officially accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) in 1963, The Ohio State University Hospitals Pharmacy residency program has produced 9 ASHP presidents, 6 Harvey AK Whitney Award recipients, 3 APhA presidents along with many local and state pharmacy organization officers.Read More
Training in health-system pharmacy administration became a discreet specialty in the late 1990s, and residency training at Ohio State’s University Hospitals expanded to specialty areas including general pharmacy practice, cardiology, ambulatory care, transplantation, and critical care. The College of Pharmacy’s division of Pharmacy Practice and Administration established a national foothold on residency training in ambulatory care through the leadership of Professor Marialice Bennett.
Established in 1992, the ambulatory care residency program has produced leaders who have been instrumental in elevating the role of community and ambulatory care pharmacists. Graduates of these programs have won multiple awards and led the nation in developing innovative practice sites.
The pharmacy residency programs at The Ohio State University have entered into a new era of excellence and have officially combined all residency programs (from the hospital and the College) to represent Ohio State as one residency program. This program is now over 40 pharmacy residents strong – and combined faculty and medical center scholarship exceeds 80 peer reviewed publications annually.
Clifton J. Latiolais stated in his 1968 Harvey AK Whitney Award words that ring true as we approach the future history of our residency program at Ohio State:
With a properly directed, goal-oriented society, let us take that step, let us mold that attitude to achieve that dream, slowly yet methodically, practically yet idealistically, authoritatively yet softly. . . as we move into history.
