The PGY-2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program builds on doctor of pharmacy education and PGY-1 pharmacy residency program education. It contributes to the development of clinical pharmacists in the specialized area of emergency medicine. The PGY-2 residency provides residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY-2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic or other specialized positions, and board certification.
The PGY-2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program will welcome its first resident in 2021. For the 2021-22 residency year, the program is recruiting one PGY-2 emergency medicine resident.

Hold a Pharm.D. degree from an Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education accredited school of pharmacy
