Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a twelve-month 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. The residency program is divided into four 3-month block rotations, with the first block focusing primarily on orientation to the Diabetes, Anticoagulation, Discharge Transition and High-Risk OB Clinics. 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. Each learning experience has specific objectives allowing the resident a clear understanding of performance expectations. This process provides ongoing feedback to assist the resident with skill development and goal attainment. All residents complete a research project and present their results at a regional residency conference.
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 take full responsibility for the care of each patient served. They provide necessary education for both medical professionals as well as all patients treated. 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 with other healthcare professionals in a manner that displays both commitment to the profession and the importance of a clinical specialist in the Ambulatory Care setting.
