Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a twelve-month American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited, PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency program for one residency candidate.
Our program strives to meet the needs of the resident based on previous PGY1 residency experience, interests, and individual goals of the candidate. The residency program is divided into four 3-month block rotations, with the first rotation devoted to orientation to the Internal Medicine/Primary Care, Diabetes, Anticoagulation and Discharge Transition Clinics. An individual training plan is created for each resident. All residents complete a research project and present their study results at a regional residency conference in the Spring.
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 advanced or specialized 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 that practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists).
The purpose of the PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy program is to prepare the resident to obtain a position as an Ambulatory Care Clinical Specialist. Residents will take full responsibility for the care of each patient served. Residents will provide necessary education for both medical professionals operating in the Outpatient Clinic as well as all patients treated. All pharmacotherapy and disease state issues will be addressed and resolved while taking into account potential barriers in the implementation of the pharmacotherapy plan (i.e. patients' socioeconomic status, insurance status, and/or cultural barriers). Residents will practice pharmacy and communicate to other healthcare professionals in a manner that displays commitment to the profession and importance of a clinical specialist in the outpatient setting.
The resident must meet the following requirements for employment at Beaumont Hospital as the PGY2 Ambulatory Care resident:
licensed pharmacist or eligible for licensure in the State of Michigan (including controlled substance license)
successful completion of a PGY1 ASHP accredited residency
Direct letters of recommendation and any questions about the PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency Program to Sarah Muench, PharmD (email@example.com)
Completed residency packets will be reviewed. Upon favorable review, residency candidates will be contacted to schedule an interview.
All application information must be received via PhORCAS no later than January 3, 2020.
