How To Apply To One Of Our Programs

Candidates must complete and submit an electronic application for the residency program of interest using the ASHP PhORCAS centralized application system. PGY1 and Pharmacotherapy candidates should apply to one of these programs only (either PGY1 or Pharmacotherapy, not both). By January 2, 2015, the following materials must be received through PhORCAS:

  • Using PhORCAS, search for the BJH residency program you are interested in, then list it under "Residency Program Designations"
  • Within PhORCAS, submit a copy of your curriculum vitae and a personal statement
  • A PhORCAS standardized reference form must be completed and submitted by three references. Ideally two references should be clinical clerkship preceptors. The third reference may be either another faculty member or a supervisor at your place of employment.
  • PGY1 and Pharmacotherapy candidates: download and complete the combined PGY1 Rotation Summary and Interview Dates Form. Once completed, upload this as a supplemental form within your PhORCAS application.
  • For PGY2 applicants only: download and complete the PGY2 Interview Dates Form. Once completed, upload this supplemental form within your PhORCAS application.
