The PGY 2 Cardiology Program began in 2015 and received ASHP accreditation in 2016. It provides necessary skills for graduates to provide pharmaceutical care across the spectrum of cardiovascular diseases. By focusing on direct patient care and cardiology fundamentals through teaching, precepting, research, and practice management the program develops an autonomous pharmacy professional.
The PGY2 Cardiology pharmacy program exists to offer a comprehensive training environment in the pharmaceutical care of cardiovascular diseases to prepare competent and confident clinical pharmacy specialists. Pharmacists will be accountable for achieving optimal drug therapy outcomes as a member of the cardiology health care team. These pharmacists will exercise skill in educating other health care professionals, patients, and the community on cardiovascular drug-related topics. They will demonstrate professional maturity by following a personal philosophy of practice, monitoring their own performance, exhibiting commitment to the profession, and exercising leadership in improving the safety and stewardship of medication use.
Pharmacy preceptors collaborate with physicians of CHMG HeartCare and LeBauer Cardiovascular Research Foundation to provide a broad range of practice opportunities across the spectrum of cardiovascular diseases including Heart Failure, Stroke, Clinical Research and Cardiothoracic Surgery.
An individualized training plan, based on the resident’s entrance level of knowledge, skills, and interests, is developed and adjusted throughout the year.
There are many precepting opportunities throughout the year to mentor pharmacy students and PGY1 pharmacy residents, as well as participate in classroom instruction at High Point University College of Pharmacy. We have collaborated with High Point University to offer a teaching certificate program to interested individuals as well.
