The hospital-based PGY1 program at Intermountain Healthcare is a unique program with 15 positions available at 6 facilities. Through the match, residents are assigned to a home-base facility where they complete their core learning experiences and staffing. Electives may be taken at various facilities throughout the healthcare system. The program director, site coordinators, and preceptors work to assist residents in selecting rotations to meet individual professional goals, ASHP residency standards, and ASHP learning objectives.
Please note that the 5 practice sites in the Salt Lake Valley are accredited as one program; therefore, candidates can apply to all 5 facilities and it will only count as one selection in PhORCAS. The PGY1 program in St. George, UT, is separately accredited (pre-candidate status); however, all facilities in the Intermountain Healthcare network follow a unified set of training standards, allowing residents to have a consistent experience regardless of where their home-base facility is.
