Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Resident (PGY-2)
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 specialized areas of practice. 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, if available.
The Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Mid-Atlantic States Post Graduate Year Two (PGY-2) Ambulatory Care residency program focuses on ambulatory care within an integrated health care system. During the residency program, residents will hone their leadership, clinical, and academic skills and cultivate a philosophy of practice that embraces being responsible to their patients, their fellow healthcare providers, the organization and the public for optimal drug therapy outcomes. Graduates of this program will be well prepared to practice as a clinical pharmacy specialist across a variety of ambulatory care settings.
Core Learning experiences for this program include but are not limited to the following:
Clinical Specialties Practice Management
Drug Utilization and Education
Residency research project
Elective learning experiences are also available in Nephrology, HIV/ ID, Anticoagulation, Behavioral Health, Medication Therapy Management (MTM), Pediatrics, Hepatology, Critical Decision Unit, Pain Management, Transitional care clinical pharmacy, Medication and Patient Safety, Legislative Affairs and university-affiliated elective courses

Candidates for the PGY2 residency position are required to have a PharmD and be eligible for licensure in Maryland, DC and Virginia. The residency program is a one year commitment starting in July 2021, with a competitive annual stipend.
