The Seton Healthcare Family (SHF) Post Graduate Year Two (PGY2) Residency in Internal Medicine is designed to provide the resident with a concentrated, yet diverse twelve-month program focused on inpatient adult Internal Medicine. The resident will be exposed to not only a variety of practice settings, but also a wide-range of patient populations. At the completion of the residency, the resident will be prepared for a position as a Clinical Specialist in an inpatient setting or a non-tenure track faculty member with a significant commitment to an Internal Medicine practice. Upon completion of the program, successful residents should also be prepared to sit for the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Pharmacotherapy Specialty Certification Exam. The Seton Healthcare Family (SHF) Post-Graduate Year 2 (PGY2) Internal Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program is an accredited program and therefore adheres to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Accreditation standards for PGY2 Programs.
Rotations within the PGY2 Internal Medicine residency program are approximately 4 weeks in length. Each learning experience has written goals, objectives and learning activities. Required 4-week rotations in the PGY2 IM program include:
Internal Medicine (5 – 6 months)
Experiential Precepting for one or more months (conducted on Internal Medicine)
Infectious Diseases (adult)
Internal Medicine Clinical Practice Management (longitudinal)
Orientation (unless early-committed from Seton Healthcare Family PGY1 pharmacy residency)
Elective Rotations: Oncology, Cardiac Transplantation, Critical Care (adult), Infectious Disease (community setting), Medical Writing
Other elective rotations may be considered based on resident interest and availability. Not all rotations are available at all times. Scheduling is dependent on preceptor availability, P4 student schedule of the preceptor, and schedules of the other residents.
Residents have several longitudinal responsibilities, including completing a research project with a final manuscript write-up for publication, administrative assignments, staffing, and monthly journal club participation. Research and leadership programming is scheduled for the residents throughout the training year.
