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 advanced or specialized 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 that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in the specialized practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists).
Graduates of the INOVA Fairfax Hospital PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency program will be empowered to treat and appropriately triage a wide range of ED patients from complex acute illnesses to routine ambulatory concerns. Emphasis is placed on the provision of bedside care with graduates being well equipped to function as an integrated member of the interdisciplinary emergency medicine team. In addition, the resident will acquire the experiences necessary to exercise leadership in emergency medicine pharmacy practice at a local and health-care system level and provide experiential and didactic education to a variety of healthcare professionals and those training to be healthcare professionals.
Applicants for the PGY-2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency program must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Doctor of Pharmacy degree from an ACPE accredited school of pharmacy
Successful completion of an ASHP-accredited PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency program
Eligibility for Virginia licensure
