PGY2 Internal Medicine - Pharmacy Residency

The PGY2 Internal Medicine residency is a 12-month, full-time training program. This specialty program is designed to build upon the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency and refine clinical knowledge and leadership in the care of the internal medicine patient. The resident will have opportunities to gain experience in direct patient care in both the inpatient and outpatient settings while working with a multidisciplinary healthcare team. Upon completion of the program, the resident is expected to demonstrate competency in the care of the internal medicine patient through direct patient care activities, clinical research, and education of patients and other healthcare providers.

The program includes required rotations in internal medicine (20 weeks), ambulatory care, antimicrobial stewardship, and critical care (medical or cardiac ICU). Elective rotations include emergency medicine, solid tumor malignancies, solid organ transplant, drug information and practice management.
