Inova Fairfax Medical Campus (IFMC) offers an ASHP-accredited PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program that uniquely combines the academic rigor of a university based hospital, and the family atmosphere of a community program.
PGY2 residency programs build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives for advanced practice areas. Residents who successfully complete PGY2 residency programs are prepared for advanced patient care or other specialized positions, and board certification in the advanced practice area, if available.
Graduates of the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency program will be empowered to treat and appropriately triage a wide range of ED patients from complex acute illnesses to routine ambulatory concerns. Emphasis is placed on the provision of bedside care with graduates being well equipped to function as an integrated member of the interdisciplinary emergency medicine team. In addition, the resident will acquire the experiences necessary to exercise leadership in emergency medicine pharmacy practice at a local and healthcare-system level and provide experiential and didactic education to a variety of healthcare professionals and those training to be healthcare professionals.
