Pharmacy Residency Program – PGY2 Emergency Medicine

The Stormont Vail Health PGY2 Pharmacy Residency Program contributes to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice by building on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs. PGY2 provides residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners, conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both the provision of patient care and other advanced practice settings. Completion of an accredited PGY2 Pharmacy Residency Program prepares residents for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
