Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a twelve-month American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited, PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency program for one residency candidate.
Our program strives to meet the needs of the resident based on previous PGY1 residency experience, interests, and individual goals of the candidate. The residency program is divided into four 3-month block rotations, with the first block devoted to orientation to the Internal Medicine, Diabetes, Anticoagulation, Discharge Transition Clinic and High-Risk OB Clinics. An individual training plan is created for each resident. Throughout subsequent blocks the resident will rotate through a number of core and elective rotations that serve to develop leadership skills and clinical expertise in Ambulatory Care related pharmacotherapy. All residents complete a research project and present their study results at a regional residency conference in the Spring.
The PGY2 Ambulatory Care pharmacy residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice. The PGY2 Ambulatory Care residency provides 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 that improves medication therapy. The purpose of the PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy program is to prepare the resident to obtain a position as an Ambulatory Care Clinical Specialist. . Residents will take full responsibility for the care of each patient served. They will provide necessary education for both medical professionals operating in the Outpatient Clinic as well as all patients treated. All pharmacotherapy and disease state issues will be addressed and resolved while taking into account potential barriers in the implementation of the pharmacotherapy plan (i.e. patients' socioeconomic status, insurance status, and/or cultural barriers). Residents will practice pharmacy and communicate to other healthcare professionals in a manner that displays commitment to the profession and importance of a clinical specialist in the outpatient setting.
The resident must meet the following requirements for employment at Beaumont Hospital as the PGY2 Ambulatory Care resident:
licensed pharmacist or eligible for licensure in the State of Michigan (including controlled substance license)
successful completion of a PGY1 ASHP accredited residency
