This PGY2 pharmacy residency program builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in ambulatory care. The program provides residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete this PGY2 program are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification.
Integrated pharmacy practitioners at Tufts Medical Center are responsible for dedicated clinical practices, drug distribution, teaching and research in a variety of ambulatory care settings. The Ambulatory Care pharmacy program works closely with the medical staff and patients to ensure medications are prescribed appropriately, administered safely, and work effectively. Pharmacists care for patients with chronic conditions in a variety of specialties including primary care, endocrinology, infectious diseases, cardiology, oncology, dermatology, rheumatology, neurology, GI and hepatology, nephrology, pulmonology, and pediatrics. Residents will focus on medication-related care of patients who are prescribed chronic, costly and complex medications that require ongoing management by a pharmacist for appropriateness, access and affordability, as well as adherence.
