About Lifespan and Lifespan Pharmacy Residency

Lifespan was founded in 1994 and is Rhode Island's first health system. Lifespan is a not-for-profit comprehensive, integrated, academic health system with The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Lifespan teaching hospitals are among the country’s top recipients of research funding from the US National Institutes of Health. The hospitals received $92 million in external research funding in fiscal 2019. All Lifespan-affiliated partners are charitable organizations that depend on support from the community to provide programs and services.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Lifespan Pharmacy Residencies are committed to serving a community that includes a diverse cultural and socioeconomic mix. We are committed to advancing diversity and inclusion within the healthcare field by supporting our faculty and training them to provide care for the specific needs of these community groups.

Lifespan and its partner hospitals are equal opportunity/affirmative action employers who do not discriminate against job applicants, employees, patients or visitors on any level. Lifespan prides itself in its ability to diversify and create an environment of inclusion by respecting and valuing the differences in race, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identification and expression, genetic information, age, religion, national origin and veteran or disability status of all people.
