Features

The PGY1/PGY2 Medication-Use Safety and Policy Residency is a 24-month program that develops strong clinical pharmacy and operations skills during the PGY1 year and builds upon that foundation during the PGY2 year. During the PGY1 year, residents will complete all requirements of the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program (Acute Care Focus) while being introduced to the medication-use safety and policy practice area through rotations, error review, committee assignments, administrative responsibilities, and projects. Residents will work closely with program leadership to select rotations in a variety of practice settings with an emphasis on complex, high-risk, and high-cost medication therapy.

During the PGY2 year, the resident will assist in driving many of the medication-use safety and policy initiatives across Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network. The resident will develop advanced skills in formulary management, drug information, medication safety, and medication-use policy within an academic health system. The residency is designed to prepare the resident to practice in a variety of health care settings and provides comprehensive training and leadership opportunities in medication utilization, formulary management, didactic and experiential teaching, medication safety, medication-use policy, budgeting, analytics, informatics, pharmacy operations and shortages, medical writing, research, and scholarly publication. For more details of the expectations of the PGY2 year, refer to the PGY2 Medication-Use Safety and Policy Residency Program.
