PGY2 pharmacy residency programs 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 that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in the specialized practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists).
This 12-month program is designed to prepare its resident to assume a position in ambulatory care practice and/or as an assistant professor at a college of pharmacy. By the end of the program, the resident will have mastered the core competencies and be prepared to take the BPS BCACP exam. The residents training will primary occur at the Texas Tech Family Medicine outpatient clinic with experiences in chronic disease state management, chronic pain management, geriatric pharmacotherapy, and research.
