Residency Manual

PGY2 pharmacy residency programs 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.

Upon completion of this residency program, the individual will be able to demonstrate leadership skills and practice as a clinical specialist in infectious diseases, play a role on an interdisciplinary infectious diseases or antimicrobial stewardship team and engage in adjunct faculty responsibilities. The individual can be expected to continue their pursuit of expertise in infectious diseases practice.
