Infirmary’s First Pharmacy Resident Completes Program

Jamie Currier, PharmD, MBA, the first pharmacist to be accepted into the CHI St. Vincent Pharmacy Residency Program in July 2018, recently completed her residency.

She joined CHI St. Vincent as the first Post-Graduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Resident, earning a teaching certificate and research certificate from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy during her residency.

She also completed a research project focused on utilization of the Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index (PESI) score and outpatient treatment of pulmonary embolism. 

Pharmacists completing the residency program are clinically prepared for an advanced level of practice at a community-based hospital and are eligible for board certification or specialty training through a PGY2 pharmacy residency.

Jamie has accepted a clinical pharmacist position at Ouachita County Medical Center in Camden, Arkansas, where she will help implement an Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, among other clinical pharmacy services.

Jamie earned her bachelor’s degree from Arkansas Tech University and her master’s and Doctor of Pharmacy degrees from Harding University.
