The informatics residency (PGY2) is a 12-month program designed to foster knowledge and appreciation for the potential advantages and limitations of new technology used to gather and disseminate information within the practice of pharmacy in a vertically and horizontally integrated health care system.
Residents completing the program will gain experience with implementing pharmacy management objectives, drug-use policies, investigational services, pharmacy operations, clinical and decentralized pharmacy services and meeting financial goals through the use of technology.

About PGY2 Pharmacy Informatics - Sentara Healthcare
Sentara Healthcare has come a long way since 1888 when it was first established as the 25-bed Retreat for the Sick in Norfolk, VA. Flash-forward more than 125 years: Sentara Healthcare is now comprised of 12 acute care hospitals with more than 300 sites of care all throughout Virginia and northeastern North Carolina and beyond.
For more than a decade, Modern Healthcare magazine has ranked Sentara as one of the nation's top integrated healthcare systems. Our not-for-profit system proudly includes advanced imaging centers, nursing and assisted-living centers, outpatient campuses, physical therapy and rehabilitation services, home health and hospice agency, a 3,800-provider medical staff and four medical groups. In addition, we provide medical transport ambulances and Nightingale air ambulance, and we extend health insurance to 445,000 people through Optima Health, our award-winning health plan.
Among our many strengths, we are a national leader in heart and kidney care, stroke care, and infection prevention. We were also the first in the nation to pioneer and develop the eICU, a remote monitoring system for intensive care. Our dedication to improving and increasing medical opti...ons for our patients is reinforced by our ongoing participation in national and international research. These vital medical trials help us advance toward our mission of improving health every day.
