The purpose of this PGY1 residency program is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

The purpose of this PGY2 pharmacy residency program is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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 the 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.

Features

This residency program prepares residents to assume high-level managerial, supervisory and leadership responsibilities. During the PGY1 year, the resident will fulfill PGY1 pharmacy residency program requirements while participating in additional administrative responsibilities. During the PGY2 year the resident will complete rotations and learning experiences that focus on safe and effective medication utilization, operations and clinical management in both inpatient and ambulatory settings, transitions of care, quality assurance, data analytics, management of human and financial resources and use of technology. Projects and longitudinal activities during both years will relate to residents’ interests in pharmacy leadership and administration. Residents will complete a two year Master’s of Healthcare Administration degree in partnership with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
