Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Ambulatory Pharmacy Residency Program

This specialized residency is designed to provide pharmacists with a solid foundation in ambulatory care across an integrated health system, and to build skills as a health care leader. Residents will be accountable for promoting a culture where the patient comes first, contributing to continuous improvement in quality and safety, and expanding clinical skills as a provider. Upon graduation, residents will be prepared to lead and transform health care, as well as advance the role of pharmacist providers in the ambulatory setting.

Pharmacy residents will receive training in eight required areas:

  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • Neurology
  • Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
  • Primary Care
  • Renal Transplant

Pharmacy residents will also have an opportunity to complete elective rotations, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced rotations in any core experiences
  • Antimicrobial Stewardship
  • Medication Safety
  • Oncology
  • Refill Authorization Center
  • Specialty Pharmacy

Longitudinal Experiences Include:

Each resident will complete two major quality improvement projects. One project will be presented as a poster at the ASHP Midyear Meeting. A second year-long project will be presented at the regional residency conference (Western States Conference) and submitted for publication. Residents will be asked to participate in various other projects throughout the year. 
Residents will be expected to expand their skills as a clinical leader. They will be provided opportunities for personal growth, leadership development and pharmacy management. Opportunities to grow skills in development and maintenance of clinical practice program will be a foundational element to the residency year. They will also be expected to participate in and contribute to organizational goals and priorities.
Lean training and application will be incorporated throughout the year.
Residents serve as preceptors for pharmacy students on APPE & IPPE rotations, pharmacy interns, and PGY1 residents. Formal didactic training and teaching opportunities may be available upon request.
