PGY2-Ambulatory Care Residency

Residency Purpose Statement

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 ambulatory care pharmacy. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both 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.

The UVA Health PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency program is a 12-month residency providing concentrated training in ambulatory care clinical pharmacy practice. The program is designed to prepare the resident to serve as an integral part of interprofessional teams caring for ambulatory patients, incorporating evidence-based care in decisions, and providing leadership in medication-related issues. Residents of the program will have the opportunity to provide care in a wide variety of settings, including internal medicine, family medicine and cardiology. Experiences in pediatrics, nephrology, hematology/ oncology, transplant, ID/HIV clinic, geriatrics transition of care, diabetes/cardiology and a neurology / multiple sclerosis clinic are available. Residents completing the program will be prepared to manage ambulatory pharmacy practices with the capability to design , implement and secure collaborative interdisciplinary practice agreements necessary for the establishment and ongoing management of ambulatory practice. In addition, they will possess the skills to deliver effective training to health care professionals and conduct research.
