The 24-month Postgraduate Year One (PGY1)/ Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Pharmacotherapy Residency Program is designed to develop a practitioner with an advanced degree of proficiency and expertise in working with interdisciplinary teams to deliver pharmaceutical care to diverse populations from ambulatory to critically ill, pediatric to geriatric ages and presenting with varied and complex health problems. The intense focus on direct patient care of this residency develops a specialist of great flexibility in the direct patient care arena, an individual who can move from one specialized area of practice to another with confidence and ease. The pharmacotherapy residency graduate refines the decision-making skill in such a way that it is transferable across practice areas and then supplements that skill with strong knowledge acquisition in a broad range of disease states.
