The PGY-2 Emergency Medicine (EM) Pharmacy Residency Program at Stanford Health Care provides specialized, practical pharmacy training in diverse emergency medicine settings that builds on skills gained from a PGY-1 general practice residency. Our goal is to train highly qualified and motivated new practitioners as they develop into the medication experts of the interdisciplinary emergency medicine team. This program will prepare the resident to practice evidence-based medicine and be able to make sound decisions for the large variety of cases that present in the emergency department.
In addition to clinical practice experiences, the PGY-2 EM resident will have the opportunity to participate in academic activities, which include an optional teaching certificate, precepting pharmacy residents/students, and providing didactic lectures to the Stanford Emergency Medicine Residency Program. The resident will also conduct a research project and engage in leadership development.
The SHC PGY-2 EM Residency Program is currently in Pre-Candidate status by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
The goal of the PGY-2 EM Pharmacy Residency Program is to provide residents with challenging learning experiences and training in multiple care environments to prepare them to become a competent and confident emergency medicine clinical pharmacist.
The program follows the ASHP Residency Learning System and its goals and learning objectives are consistent with standards developed by ASHP.
