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 Health System Pharmacy Administration Program at Abbott Northwestern Hospital provides the resident with the skills and knowledge required to become a competent pharmacy leader.
Individuals fulfilling the standards of the PGY2 Health System Pharmacy Administration Residency Program will be prepared to secure a leadership role in health-system pharmacy. A variety of pharmacy administration rotations are offered to give the residents exposure to a wide array of health system pharmacy administration
experiences across the continuum of care. The resident serves as a member of the hospital site pharmacy management team, as well as the health system pharmacy enterprise leadership team.
Each resident staffs central pharmacy an average of every third weekend from approximately mid-August through the end of residency year. Also, each resident will work two of six observed holidays.
