Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a twelve-month American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accredited, Ambulatory Care PGY-2 Residency program for one residency candidate. The program begins July 1st and ends June 30th.
Our program strives to meet the needs of the resident based on previous PGY-1 residency experience, interests, and the individual goals of the candidate. The residency program is divided into four 3-month block rotations, with the first rotation devoted to
orientation to Internal Medicine, Diabetes, Anticoagulation, High-Risk OB and Discharge Transition Clinics. An individualized 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.
Residency Program Purpose
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 PGY-2 Ambulatory Care 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.
