PGY-2 Internal Medicine Residency

About the PGY-2 Internal Medicine Residency Program

This PGY-2 internal medicine residency program is designed to prepare exemplary practitioners/educators for entry into academic clinical pharmacy practice positions. A major focus of this program will be to prepare the resident to function effectively as a clinical faculty member by emphasizing patient care, service, teaching (clinical & didactic), and scholarly activity.

After completion of this residency, the graduate will be able to:

  • establish a practice site in internal medicine
  • establish a teaching service for pharmacy students and residents
  • prepare and present didactic lectures and seminars
  • conduct scholarly research activity

Through participation in the program components over a one-year period, the resident will have the skills necessary to assume a clinical faculty position within a school of pharmacy, and/or a clinical coordinator, and/or clinical pharmacist.
