The purpose of this PGY2 pharmacy residency program is to 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.
This program is designed to advance the resident’s skills in emergency medicine, pre-hospital patient care and clinical toxicology. Training will be provided at a Level 1 trauma, comprehensive stroke, academic medical and tertiary referral center. The core curricula are focused on creating a well-rounded clinical practitioner who possesses the unique skill sets needed for emergency medicine practice.
Clinical toxicology is an important component of the program. The resident will work closely with toxicologists during their longitudinal experience to lay the foundation for board certification through the American Board of Applied Toxicology (ABAT). Residents will have ample opportunities for teaching and research in EM and toxicology.
Minimum of eight months of emergency department, toxicology and critical care rotations.
Participation in longitudinal toxicology and pre-hospital/flight medicine experiences with the Wisconsin Poison Center and Milwaukee County EMS/Flight for Life.
Research projects are tailored to the interest of the resident and external publications and/or presentations are encouraged.
Rotations are highly customizable and electives are tailored to the interest of the resident but can include any of the many specialties at Froedtert Hospital or repeat of a prior rotation.
Residents will have the opportunity to precept PGY1 pharmacy residents and APPE students on clinical rotations
ACLS, BDLS, FCCS and PALS training will be provided.
