The Ambulatory Care PGY 2 program at University of Utah Health develops clinically strong practitioners with the skills necessary to develop a patient centered pharmacy practice in ambulatory care, and provide education to patients, pharmacy students, physician assistant students, primary care medical residents, and other health care professionals
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 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 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 the specialized practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists
The resident will provide clinical pharmacy services for the Sugarhouse Family Medicine Clinic within the University of Utah Community Clinics. Maintaining continuity practices in these clinics, the resident will spend one half day per week for 36 weeks of the year in up to three elective ambulatory care clinics, as a longitudinal experience. Up to 80 hours of observational rotation is available if the resident seeks a variety of experiences instead of specific electives. Each elective experience will be up to 12 weeks in length, and the resident will select the electives that are the best fit to their customized training plan. Unless the resident has significant PGY 1 experience in thrombosis management, this elective will be highly suggested. Developed rotations for electives include pulmonary, geriatrics, and cardiology, but choices for elective or observational experiences include but are not limited to: ARUP employee family health clinic, neurology, headache clinic, GI/hepatitis, thrombosis, primary care in a non-residency clinic, medication safety, quality improvement and health plans.
