PGY-2 Program Purpose
PGY-2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY-1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY-2 residencies provide opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience, knowledge, and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY-2 pharmacy residency are prepared for pharmacy careers in advanced patient care, academia, other specialized positions, and board certification.
