Medication-Use Safety and Policy
The UH Cleveland Medical Center postgraduate year two (PGY2) specialty residency in medication use safety and policy is a one-year postgraduate training program designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from generalist practice to specialized practice that meets the needs of system wide management of the medication-use system at a large health system. This training focuses on integrating clinical, safety, policy, formulary, informatics, and drug distribution systems to optimize drug therapy for the University Hospitals Health System. Special focus is given to formulary management and medication safety, with aspects of quality improvement, analytics, informatics, accreditation, compliance, and administration. The resident will participate in system functions throughout the fifteen hospital health-system and locally at Cleveland Medical Center.
During the residency year, our resident will become an integral member of the system pharmacy department team, learning our systems and providing valuable new perspectives from their own experiences. Our team practices strong leadership and project management skills in our own day to day work; we hope to impart these valuable skills into our resident’s work practices. Our goal is to provide experience and learning such that the resident will be able to independently function as a System Pharmacy team member during their final/mastery month. Graduates of this residency program will be prepared to pursue a multitude of careers including Medication Safety, Medication Use Policy, Formulary Management, Drug Information. Throughout the residency experience, the resident will develop individual and professional skills that result in a highly marketable practitioner.
Graduates of accredited Colleges of Pharmacy with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and eligible for licensure in the state of Ohio may submit the following materials via PhORCAS to the program director for consideration for residency program admission:
