The UW Medicine PGY2 residency in Ambulatory Care at Harborview Medical Center is an ASHP-accredited post graduate program aimed to transition the resident from the generalist practitioner to a skilled specialized ambulatory practitioner who can meet the multitude of challenges in primary care. The resident will concentrate on developing and refining skills to manage and triage complex acute and chronic medical conditions in an interdisciplinary primary care clinic. The resident will be an instructor for the applied therapeutic skills course each week for the academic year. Additional academic opportunities are available for those interested in pursuing a clinical faculty career. This residency will prepare the candidate to take a leadership role as an ambulatory clinical pharmacist and or clinical faculty.
