The PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Ambulatory Care at Regional One Health is an accredited residency by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The 12-month program is composed of advanced ambulatory and inpatient practice experiences. Residents achieve professional competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and pharmacy services. PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide 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 an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
Required experiences include:
American Diabetes Association accredited Outpatient Diabetes Education Class (longitudinal)
