Emergency Medicine

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.


Southwest General is proud to announce that our Emergency Medicine program has won The 2023 OSHP Best Practice Advancement Success Award!
