Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a twelve-month American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited, PGY-2 Ambulatory Care Residency program for one candidate.
Our program strives to meet the needs of the resident based on previous PGY-1 residency experience, interests, and individual goals of the candidate. The residency program is divided into four 3-month block rotations, with the first rotation devoted to orientation to the Internal Medicine, Diabetes, Anticoagulation and Discharge Transition Clinics. An individual training plan is created for each resident. Subsequent learning experiences are a mix of longitudinal and concentrated. All residents complete a research project and present their study results at a regional residency conference in the Spring.
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 an 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 that practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists).
The purpose of the PGY-2 Ambulatory Care program is to prepare the resident to obtain a position as an Ambulatory Care Clinical Specialist. Residents will take full responsibility for the care of each patient served. Residents will provide the necessary education for both medical professionals operating in the outpatient clinic as well as all patients treated. All pharmacotherapy and disease state issues will be addressed and resolved while taking into account potential barriers in the implementation of the pharmacotherapy plan (i.e. patients' socioeconomic status, insurance status, and/or cultural barriers). Residents will practice pharmacy and communicate with other healthcare professionals in a manner that displays a commitment to the profession and the importance of a clinical specialist in the outpatient setting.
The resident must meet the following requirements for employment at Beaumont Hospital as the PGY-2 Ambulatory Care resident:
A licensed pharmacist or eligible for licensure in the State of Michigan (including controlled substance license)
Successful completion of a PGY-1 ASHP accredited residency
