PGY-2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration

Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a twelve-month American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accreditated Pharmacy Administration PGY-2 Residency program for one residency candidate. The program strives to meet the needs of the resident based on previous PGY-1 residency experience, interests and individual goals of the candidate. The program provides unique, concurrent longitudinal experiences rather than rotations to provide a real-world and thorough managerial training program. An individual training plan is created for each resident. All residents complete a research project and present their study results at the Ohio Pharmacy Residency Conference (OPRC) in the Spring.
