Pharmacy Residency PGY-2
We have filled our position through early commit for 2020-2021
PGY2 Program Purpose
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.)
education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development
of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies
provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners
by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge
and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced
practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2
pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or
other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
The Emergency Medicine Residency at Southwest General develops the resident
as an integrated part of the Emergency Medicine and Critical Care teams.
Our pharmacy resident will become proficient at managing complex and critically
ill patients in a multidisciplinary team approach. Direct patient and
caregiver contact allows our resident to improve patient outcomes by optimizing
medication management and adherence.
