CoxHealth is recruiting for PGY-2 Pharmacy Residents in the expertise areas of Ambulatory Care and Critical Care. These residencies provides advanced clinical training in pharmacotherapy, as well as opportunities for research, teaching, and scholarship. Upon completion of this residency, the pharmacist will be a competent clinical pharmacy practitioner that engages in multidisciplinary collaboration, demonstrates advanced critical thinking skills, and is able to design and implement complex medication recommendations in a variety of environments.
These 12-month programs build upon the broad-based competencies achieved in a PGY1 pharmacy residency and prepares residents to function independently in the therapeutic management of patients in a variety of settings. During the residency, pharmacists develop leadership, practice management skills, and gain experience in educating health care professionals, students, and patients. Residents learn to integrate their knowledge of drug delivery and patient care to optimize and ensure a safe and cost effective medication use system.
The PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency (1 position) accredited by ASHP is located at Cox Medical Center South, a Level I trauma center serving southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas, with approximately 75 adult critical care beds. Residents participate in case conferences, guideline reviews, a leadership book club, a grand round presentation, teaching, research, and writing.
The PGY2 ambulatory care residency (3 positions) accredited by ASHP provides various outpatient opportunities throughout the health system. Residents will rotate through four 10 week blocks: leadership and advocacy, managed care, medically underserved, and specialty. They provide care for 30 weeks in primary care sites, specialty disease state clinics, dispensary, and community pharmacy. In addition to direct patient care, residents will also complete a research project and present the results both locally and nationally; participate in practice management activities and precept PGY1 residents and students; collaborate with system care management teams and the medical residency; and complete a business plan for expansion or enhancement of an ambulatory care service.
