AdventHealth East Orlando (AHEO) is a full-service, community hospital as well as an innovative and respected local leader — filling a vital need in a fast-growing area. AHEO is a 295-bed academic community teaching hospital which is home to the busiest Emergency Department in Orlando. AHEO provides care for more than 12,000 inpatients and 119,000 emergency department (ED) patients annually and hosts medical residents across ED, family medicine, and podiatry programs. We are also a clinical teaching site for several colleges of pharmacy, medicine and nursing and are home to a well-established PGY1 Pharmacy Residency which offers the PGY2 resident the opportunity for both mentorship, leadership, and layered learning.
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) 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 or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY-2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification.
AdventHealth East Orlando is home to a 100-bed Emergency Department which offers the following services: primary stroke center, 24/7 interventional cardiology, telepsychology, and substance abuse care. Residents will actively collaborate with emergency medicine physician residents, attending physicians, nurses, respiratory therapy, and case management. The presence of pharmacy and medical students as well as the PGY1 residency will provide an opportunity for layered learning and further development of precepting skills. This program will provide progressive independence in order to develop highly skilled and confident pharmacists. Focus will be placed on longitudinal projects and pharmacist-led initiatives to give the resident ownership of patient-care outcomes.
