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 12-month residency program is designed to prepare the graduate for an advanced role in thrombosis and hemostasis clinical settings including anticoagulation and hemostasis consult services, outpatient anticoagulation management services, or anticoagulation and hemostasis stewardship program as well as a leadership or faculty member role. Residents will complete research projects, a service development project and teaching activities that are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the resident. Residents will have the opportunity to precept PGY1 residents and PharmD students on clinical rotation. The residency program has a biweekly education seminar with other THM residency sites across the country to provide additional learning and presenting opportunities, networking and professional development.
The program is affiliated with the Medical College of Wisconsin, which provides residents with teaching opportunities in didactic and experiential settings. An optional teaching certificate is available. Residents will have opportunities to precept and take an active role in layered learning within the organization. Research projects, service development, and teaching activities are tailored to align with the needs and interests of the PGY2 resident.
