Job Status:





You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Pharmacy Resident.




Your pharmacy knowledge is second to none: your patients feel it in the expertise you share. Families feel it in your communication. Colleagues feel it in your support. 




You’re generous with your thoughts, your partnerships and especially your knowledge, because your coordination of all things drug related is crucial.




You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.








St. Vincent Healthcare is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 286-bed level II trauma center has provided care in Montana and the surrounding area since 1898, and our 30-clinic network ensures community needs are met. We offer comprehensive, specialty care, including a “hospital within a hospital” specifically for children, and are proud to extend SCL Health’s mission by treating the poor, the vulnerable, our community and each other.




Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.








Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.




We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.




We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn. And we will share our knowledge with each other, patients and families.
