PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Purpose
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 integrating and incorporating accumulated experiences and knowledge 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, in Ambulatory Care Pharmacy (BCACP).
The PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency is designed to meet the educational goals and objectives, as outlined by the ASHP PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency Accreditation Standard.
Educational Outcomes Required by the Accreditation Standard:
R1. Patient Care R2. Advancing Practice and Improving Patient Care R3. Leadership and Management R4. Teaching, Education, and Dissemination of Knowledge Electives may be added based on available resources and resident interest
The Post Graduate Year Two (PGY2) Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency at Ascension Wisconsin is designed to provide PGY1 graduates the opportunity to grow beyond generalist practice and further the development of specialized care in areas specific to the needs of ambulatory patients. It is assumed that the resident has already achieved a basic level of competence commensurate with that of a PGY1 Pharmacy Residency. The PGY2 residency focuses on developing the knowledge, attitudes, training and skills necessary to cultivate pharmacists who are competent and compassionate practitioners who are prepared for a role as an ambulatory care pharmacist.
Graduates of the residency have the capability to design, implement, and secure collaborative interdisciplinary practice agreements necessary to establish new areas of ambulatory practice and expand ongoing service lines. Graduates are empowered to treat and appropriately triage the most complex chronic and acute illnesses presented by ambulatory patients, while providing care within the context of a long-term health care partnership with both patients and health care providers that emphasizes health improvement and disease prevention. Completion of this PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency will provide the practitioner the advanced critical thinking skills and clinical knowledge necessary to practice as an ambulatory care pharmacotherapy expert, to enhance ambulatory care services as a clinical coordinator, and/or to share skills with others by serving as an adjunct faculty member.
