The PGY2 residency in ambulatory pharmacy is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from generalist practice that includes the ambulatory environment to specialized practice specific to the needs of ambulatory patients. PGY2 residency graduates exit with the ability to secure the agreements necessary for the establishment of a collaborative interdisciplinary ambulatory practice. They will have the capability to design and implement the services made possible by these approvals or agreements and to take full responsibility for the ongoing management of and planning for those services, including skills to assess their success via outcomes analyses. The graduates of the ambulatory care residency are empowered to treat and appropriately triage the most complex chronic and acute illnesses presented by ambulatory patients, including those with multiple disease states and serious complications. This care is delivered within the context of a long-term health care partnership with the patient that emphasizes health improvement, wellness, and disease prevention.
PGY2 ambulatory care residency graduates are primed for ambulatory practice leadership. This includes the ability to perceive the need for and deliver a wide range of programs that contribute to the public’s health, active participation in professional organizations, mentoring skills, and advanced capability to provide insightful education or training for students, pharmacy residents, pharmacy colleagues, nurses, physicians, and medical residents. The leadership skills acquired and developed by the ambulatory care residency graduates equips the individual to serve the ambulatory pharmacy practice as the expert on medication prescribing, including dealing with drug shortages, and managing the prescribing and procurement of special-order medications.
