The University of Colorado is an interprofessional, state of the art academic medical center. Our residents have robust clinical training and educational/academic experiences that focus in ambulatory care with an emphasis in primary care and population health. Residents gain experience in collaborative drug therapy management practice and protocol development, complete a research project of publishable/presentable quality, and are involved with practice management activities.
Residents who successfully complete our accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification in ambulatory care. Graduates of this program are qualified to practice as a clinical pharmacist and/or become a faculty member at a School of Pharmacy or Medicine. We are looking for talented people who want to make a difference to join our team. We are very proud to have been the recipients of the 2019 ASHP Best Residency Program Award.
Throughout the 12-month program, residents learn to be clinical pharmacy specialists and gain experience in longitudinal, core, and elective rotations. Required longitudinal experiences include population health, academia, and research. Required core clinical rotations are scheduled over 3 - 6 months and include geriatrics, family medicine, and primary care (internal medicine or an additional family medicine, based on resident preference and site availability). We also offer several elective rotation options in clinical lipidology, advanced diabetes, FQHC clinic, nephrology, pediatrics, pharmacy education, psychiatry, solid organ transplantation, etc.
