The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy provides two excellent training opportunities with experienced clinical faculty at the South Texas Veterans Health Care System in San Antonio and Ascension Seton in Austin. Only the Ascension Seton PGY-2 Internal Medicine program will be participating in PPS.
The PGY2 residency in Internal Medicine at Ascension Seton is designed to provide the resident with a concentrated 12-month training program focused on adult internal medicine. At the completion of the residency, the resident will be prepared for a position as a clinical specialist in an inpatient setting or a non-tenure track faculty member with a significant commitment to an internal medicine practice.
The PGY2 Internal Medicine resident will complete one month of orientation, five to six months of internal medicine, one month of infectious diseases, and one month of cardiology. Experience in academia/teaching, pharmacy administration and research are gained longitudinally.
The five to six months of internal medicine will occur in two of our community hospitals as well as our large tertiary academic medical center. One month of internal medicine will be focused on experiential precepting. Elective rotations are available in a variety of medicine subspecialties such as critical care, cardiac transplant, oncology and medical writing. Any required rotation may be repeated as an elective. All rotations are offered based on preceptor availability.
The PGY2 Internal Medicine resident will get broad exposure to teaching (large group lecture, small group facilitation and experiential teaching). An Academic Training Program is offered by The University of Texas to help prepare the resident for the activities during the year. All residents will teach one to three didactic lectures, facilitate a small group pharmacotherapy laboratory and assist in precepting pharmacy students on the internal medicine rotation. Residents will also participate in a weekly resident seminar series at the University and will be required to deliver a 40-minute seminar presentation with handout.
Residents in The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy Affiliated Programs are eligible for appointment as an Instructor in Clinical Pharmacy with the College of Pharmacy. There are also opportunities for participation in Resident Rounds, the Teaching and Leadership Training Program, teaching in labs and precepting clerkship students.
