National research shows that hospitals with residency programs offer improved
patient outcomes. We believe the presence of residents in the hospital
provides an infusion of new ideas and techniques, benefitting patients,
established physicians and other hospital staff members.
Graduate Medical Education
For the past 40 years, we have offered a graduate medical education program
– a unique feature for a not-for-profit community hospital. Our
program includes an Internal Medicine residency and a General Surgery
residency. Nearly 1,000 medical and surgical residents have taken advantage
of performing their residency in this community-based environment, complemented
by rotations through Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. Of these,
more than one-third find themselves returning upon graduation to practice
locally, thus ensuring the future of care in the San Gabriel Valley.
Pharmacy Residency Program
This one-year post-graduate residency places an emphasis in pharmaceutical
care. The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency offers residents the opportunity to
develop and apply their didactic pharmaceutical knowledge in areas of
adult and pediatric acute care, ambulatory care, and practice management
while offering residents optimum independence in a supportive, state-of-the-art
environment. The overall purpose of Huntington's residency program
is to acquire the skills to become a pharmaceutical care practitioner,
emphasizing the development of clinical, teaching, and leadership abilities.
Nurse Residency Program
This is a brand new graduate RN Residency Program, designed to support
you in your transition from advanced beginner to competent professional.
There is no application process - as a new graduate hired at Huntington
Hospital, you will automatically be enrolled in the program. We build
on previous undergraduate nursing education and clinical competencies
through a program of learning and work experiences.
