Residency Manual

The purpose of this PGY2 pharmacy residency program is to 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 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.


This 12-month residency program is designed to prepare the graduate for an advanced role in an ambulatory care setting. With a focus on leadership and academic medicine, graduates are able to pursue careers in multiple areas of pharmacy practice. Through rotation and longitudinal experiences, residents gain skills in service development, practice management, and multidisciplinary education. Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin employs clinical pharmacists in primary care and specialty clinics throughout the system, all of which offer excellent opportunities for residents. The graduate will be prepared to develop new sustainable ambulatory care services, serve as a skilled teacher, practice independently, and integrate into a variety of health care delivery models while contributing to the advancement of the pharmacy profession.

The program is affiliated with the Medical College of Wisconsin, which provides residents with teaching opportunities in didactic and experiential settings. An optional teaching certificate is available. Residents will have opportunities to precept and take an active role in layered learning within the organization. Research projects, service development, and teaching activities are tailored to align with the needs and interests of the PGY2 resident.
