The St. Joseph’s/Candler (SJ/C) Ambulatory Care PGY2 Residency Program is designed according to ASHP standards to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. The SJ/C PGY2 Ambulatory Care residency program provides a 12-month ambulatory care pharmacy practice experience. There are two open positions for this residency. The residency program will strive to provide an optimal environment for residency learning through continued preceptor and professionalism development, pharmacotherapy management, frequent two-way feedback between the resident and preceptors/administrators, and a commitment to the individual goals and interests of each resident. The residency will be structured with as much flexibility as possible allowing the resident to explore areas of interest while meeting the primary goals and objectives set forth by ASHP. It is also affiliated with The University of Georgia (UGA) College of Pharmacy which provides a graduate certificate program for the PGY2 residents. Required learning experiences include anticoagulation, primary care and disease state management across multiple locations, wellness and population health, chronic care management, administration, hepatitis C, transitions of care, SOURCE (underserved patient population), and precepting. Elective opportunities are available in academia, cardiology, pulmonology, and oncology.
U.S. Citizenship and completion of an ASHP-accredited PGY1 residency. Transcript(s), CV and a minimum of three letters of recommendation are required for consideration. Licensure in the State of Georgia must be obtained
