Overview

Upon completion of the residency, the pharmacist will be a competent clinical pharmacy practitioner in ambulatory care that engages in multidisciplinary collaboration, demonstrates advanced critical thinking skills, and is able to design and implement complex medication recommendations in this fast-paced environment. Graduates of this program will be adequately prepared to practice as an ambulatory care specialist or in academia.

Program Description

PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of 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 or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

This PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy residency program is unique in that the resident will play an integral role in the promotion of population health services at AU Medical Center. Learning experiences will begin with short blocks for introduction to primary practice sites, with the majority of the 12 month residency year being longitudinal in nature. Residents will provide care for adult, pediatric, and geriatric populations via multidisciplinary patient-centered, team-based approaches and using collaborative drug therapy management protocols. Residents will develop skills in patient care, leadership, teaching, and research. Residents will be able to take advantage of the strengths of the UGA College of Pharmacy, AU Medical Center and Medical College of Georgia programs and gain experience in a variety of interprofessional teaching activities. Activities may include didactic, small group/laboratory, medical resident/physician faculty lectures, and experiential teaching with both pharmacy and medical students. UGA residents are classified as graduate students and will receive a Graduate Certificate in Clinical Pharmacy in addition to the Residency Certificate upon successful completion of the program.
