The PGY-2 Internal Medicine Residency Program is designed to provide the opportunity for the resident to obtain advanced training in the area of internal medicine and its sub-specialties. The resident will receive well-rounded training experience that will enable the resident to succeed in the areas of service, teaching, and scholarly activities. Service experiences include clinical service, formulary management, medication-use evaluation, and distribution. Teaching experiences include didactic teaching, small group facilitation, experiential precepting, and human-patient simulation. Scholarly experiences include preparation of a manuscript for publication, presentation of a professional poster at a national meeting, and development of a longitudinal research project. The resident will also complete a longitudinal pharmacy practice component including staffing responsibilities every third week.
The internal medicine services are academic teaching services run by physicians who value pharmacy services and are receptive to pharmacy contributions to teaching and patient care. Teaching experiences include didactic teaching, small group facilitation, experiential precepting, and human-patient simulation.
