The PGY2 Residency Program in Internal Medicine is a 12-month program designed to train selected, highly motivated and qualified pharmacists who are able to assume the responsibility for providing specialized pharmaceutical care to adult internal medicine patients.
Residency graduates are equipped to participate as integral members of interdisciplinary teams caring for internal medicine patients, assuming responsibility for the patient’s medication-related care. In that role they provide the team with evidence-based medication-related information and formulate that information into expert recommendations to the team for the use of medications and other therapeutic approaches. Rotations in general internal medicine, medical specialties and subspecialties are offered.
Number of Positions: 1 (Traditional) + 1 (International Track)
The design of this program is intended to offer the resident as much flexibility as possible, while accomplishing the objectives of the program. Therefore, the program will be individualized to suit the needs of the particular resident. The program emphasizes clinical practice as well as a variety of teaching experiences and consists of 7 months of core (required) learning experiences, five months of electives and several required longitudinal experiences.
This residency participates in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Residency Matching Program (ASHP) and is fully accredited by ASHP. Upon successful completion of the residency program, an appropriate certificate is awarded to the resident by the college and the hospital.
