PGY-2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY-1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY-2 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 PGY-2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
The PGY-2 Pharmacy Informatics Residency Program draws on the clinical foundation of the entering resident, including general competencies for managing medication use systems and the support of optimal medication therapy outcomes.
This 12-month, full-time program offers training in all aspects of the electronic medical record (EMR), computerized physician order entry (CPOE), clinical decision support, pharmacy automation, clinical automation, data protection, and other standards and best practices in the healthcare environment.
Outcomes of Residency:
Upon completion of program, the resident will be able to:
Evaluate opportunities for improving patient outcomes through the application of pharmacy informatics principles, standards, and best practices.
