We also have pharmacists who work within our state-of-the-art automated refill pharmacies in Downey and Livermore, where we provide centralized high-tech automated drug dispensing as well as regional and local consultations through our regional call center.

Pharmacy believes knowledge is worth sharing. And that together, we can make a difference in the lives of those in our community. As a pharmacist at Kaiser Permanente you'll have the freedom to put your beliefs into practice. Working with physicians and patients to determine the best possible treatment programs, you'll see the definition of collaboration come to life as a vital member of our health care team. At Kaiser Permanente, we trust your instincts and empower you to make the decisions you believe are necessary for your patients' well-being.

"For more than four decades, Kaiser Permanente’s Pharmacy Residency Programs have provided pharmacy graduates invaluable experience in a wide variety of settings within our integrated health care model. As you decide which path to purse in your professional journey, you will see first-hand how pharmacy touches every aspect of the care continuum.
Most importantly, your residency will take place in an environment that is focused intensely on the needs of the patient. Working with physicians and other care providers, you will experience collaborative care as a vital member of our health care team. You will be informed, inspired and challenged.
The resources and expertise that Kaiser Permanente devotes to our pharmacy residents is a reflection of how much we value each of them as committed professionals beginning careers that will improve and save lives. We also believe that comprehensive pharmacy residencies are vital to sustaining and advancing a profession that will play an ever-increasing role in ensuring that high-quality, affordable health care is available to all."
