Professional Education

PGY-2, Infectious Disease

Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a twelve-month Infectious Diseases PGY-2 Residency program for one residency candidate. As a new residency program, it was granted pre-candidate status by ASHP and will be reviewed for ASHP accreditation during the first residency year.


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 PGY-2 Infectious Diseases residency program at Beaumont, Royal Oak provides training in diverse areas of infectious disease from 4 experienced clinical infectious disease pharmacists. The residency program provides the resident with the knowledge and skills necessary to run a successful stewardship program, be an effective member of the ID consult team, and competent in practice-based research.
