The ASHP- accredited PGY2 specialty residency in Ambulatory Care at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy Dallas/Ft. Worth Regional Campus builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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.
The 12-month program is designed to lead the resident through a variety of longitudinal practice experiences. By the end of the program, the resident should feel competent practicing within a variety of outpatient settings involving Ambulatory Care pharmacotherapy. The residency includes core rotations that are chosen to establish a strong base in Ambulatory Care. Core Ambulatory Care disease states within this residency include diabetes mellitus, hypertension, anticoagulation, coronary artery disease, heart failure, and hyperlipidemia. The resident may choose electives based on his/her career goals. Although the residency is designed around these core and elective longitudinal rotations, the focus of the training will be to master each of the disease states established within the ASHP Practice Standards for a Specialized Residency in Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Practice.
Residency applicants must have a Pharm.D. degree from an ACPE-Accredited program, be eligible for licensure in Texas, and be eligible for preceptorship in Texas Tech University HSC School of Pharmacy. Candidates for the Ambulatory Care Specialty Residency should have completed a PGY1 Residency. Candidates will be required to consent in writing to undergo a background check and possible drug testing prior to employment.
