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 Hospital’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
Huntington Hospital’s new graduate RN residency program is designed to support RN Residents transition from advanced beginner to competent professional. We build on previous undergraduate nursing education and clinical competencies through a program of learning and work experiences. Huntington Hospital’s Nurse Residency Program is accredited with distinction as a Practice Transition Program by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation in Practice Transition Programs within various departments.
