PGY2 Ambulatory Care Program

Ambulatory care

Parkview offers a 12-month American Society of Health-System Pharmacists-accredited PGY2 ambulatory care residency for two residency candidates. Parkview’s PGY2 ambulatory care residency is designed to develop the resident into an independent, competent, confident and compassionate practitioner with the ability to provide excellent patient care in the ambulatory setting. This resident will develop a core skill set in comprehensive medication management, patient interaction, communication, practice management, team building and time management. The program will assist residents in developing their precepting skills and will integrate precepting into various learning experiences.

Purpose statement

PGY2 residency programs build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals and objectives for advanced practice areas. Residents who successfully complete PGY2 residency programs are prepared for advanced patient care or other specialized positions, and board certification in the advanced practice area, if available.
