The post-graduate year two (PGY-2) Ambulatory Care Residency at Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM) is a 12-month program that builds upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY-1 pharmacy residency. The program accelerates your growth beyond generalist practice and contributes to your development as a clinical pharmacist with specialized training. You’ll have opportunities to function independently by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings.
You will be exposed to learning experiences in multi-disciplinary specialty clinics and will integrate into the specialty pharmacy team where you will develop skills in navigating and managing the specialty medication approval process, patient education and specialty pharmacy operations. After completing our program, you are prepared for advanced patient care, academic or specialized positions and board certification in ambulatory care.
Goals of the PGY-2 ambulatory care pharmacy residency program at EUHM include:
Clinical practice: You will optimize pharmacotherapy for patients in primary and specialty care clinics and learn how to incorporate your clinical knowledge in day-to-day practice and how to function independently as a member of the health care team.
Teaching: You will be involved in teaching pharmacy practice residents, pharmacy students, nursing staff and other members of the health care team.
Research: You will learn to set up and conduct a clinical study by obtaining approvals from Emory’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) and institutional research committee.
Practice management: You will master personal development skills for life-long learning and professional growth.
