PGY2, Infectious Disease

Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers an ASHP - accredited twelve-month Infectious Diseases PGY2 Residency program for one residency candidate. Our program strives to meet the needs of the resident based on previous PGY1 residency experience, interests and individual goals.


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 PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak provides the resident with training in diverse areas of infectious disease from four experienced clinical infectious disease pharmacists. The resident will rotate through a number of core and elective rotations that serve to develop leadership skills and clinical expertise in Infectious Diseases pharmacotherapy. Participation in interdisciplinary committees, interactions with other healthcare providers, along with formal and informal presentations, will help strengthen the resident’s communication skills. The resident will gain teaching experience through student and resident preceptorship and didactic instruction



Overview Program Requirements

The resident must meet the following requirements for employment at Beaumont Hospital as the PGY2 Infectious Diseases pharmacy resident:

  • licensed pharmacist or eligible for licensure in the State of Michigan (including controlled substance license)

The PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program can be structurally divided into 3 components; individual learning experiences (each one month in duration, unless otherwise specified), longitudinal requirements, and weekend staffing. Our program strives to maximize individual growth and development during the year through the use of our advisor program.

The PGY2 ID resident will complete 9 required learning experiences, 6 required longitudinal learning experiences and 2 elective learning experiences. Any required or elective learning experience may be repeated a second time as an elective (with the exception of Orientation, Microbiology/Infection Prevention and Epidemiology, and off-site learning experiences). The sequence of learning experiences is dependent upon preceptor availability and resident requests for particular learning experiences prior to Midyear Clinical Meeting.
