Jackson Hospital & Clinic
Location: Montgomery, Alabama
Emergency Medicine Pharmacy
The purpose of Jackson Hospital and Clinic’s PGY-2 Emergency Medicine pharmacy residency program is to build on the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY-1 training to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients presenting emergently with a wide range of conditions, eligible for emergency medicine board certification, and capable of managing an emergency medicine pharmacy practice.
The PGY2 Emergency Medicine pharmacy residency at Jackson Hospital is a 12-month full time program that offers experience focused on emergent and critical patient care. Clinical, operational, and educational aspects of pharmacy practice are emphasized during this comprehensive training experience. Developing skills to provide safe medication use through patient-focused, evidence-based medication management is the foundation and focus of our training. Required clinical learning experiences are 5 weeks in duration. Residents may select electives based on their interests and tailor the program to focus on specific clinical interests and career goals.
In addition to developing clinical skills, residents will also have several direct teaching opportunities, be involved in the medication use process, and gain experience implementing research or practice projects through completion of a major project. All learning experiences are designed to produce an emergency medicine pharmacy specialist with strong leadership abilities, project management skills, critical thinking skills, and oral and written communication skills.
