The Detroit Medical Center (DMC) is committed to providing the highest quality postgraduate training in pharmacy practice and offers two PGY2 Pharmacy Residency programs based at Harper Hutzel Hospital (HHH): Ambulatory Care (1 position) and Pharmacotherapy (1 position). The ASHP-accredited PGY2 Pharmacy Residency Programs provide the residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experiences and knowledge and incorporating both in the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete one of the two accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency programs at HHH should possess competencies for a career as a clinical pharmacy specialist or clinical faculty at an academic institution.
Pharmacy Services focus on patient care at HHH, the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) and the DMC Heart Hospital. As part of the healthcare team, clinical pharmacists and specialists conduct patient rounds, analyze all drug therapy, and provide up-to-date pharmacotherapeutic data. Some of our pharmacy based programs include vancomycin and aminoglycoside dosing, renal dosing, inpatient anticoagulation dosing services, and pharmacist run geriatric pharmacotherapy clinic. The ambulatory care resident will have the opportunity to collaborate with clinical pharmacy specialists and WSU faculty to build on and gain knowledge in ambulatory primary and specialty care. The PGY2 Pharmacy Residency programs will be tailored to the needs of the resident based on previous clinical experience.
The applicant must be an enthusiastic and highly motivated graduate of a college of pharmacy accredited in the United States and must be licensed or eligible for licensure in the State of Michigan. Interested candidates should possess a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and have completed an ASHP Accredited PGY1 residency.
