Welcome to the 24-month PGY1 and PGY2 Medication-Use Safety and Policy Residency Program at AdventHealth Orlando. Come train at one of the largest hospitals in the nation! We provide patient care for many disease states utilizing pharmacists in a variety of specialties. Our second year preceptors have extensive training and experience and are leading the charge for the health system in formulary, policy, medication safety, and informatics.
***Please note, we are also recruiting for a PGY-2 Medication-Use Safety and Policy resident for the 2024-2025 residency year***
The first year of this PGY1/2 program aims for the resident to develop a strong clinical foundation with various opportunities to engage in administrative experiences. The second year focuses on the medication-use safety and policy aspect of this residency. Residents provide evidence-based patient care, lead process improvement initiatives, direct clinical programs and collaborative practice teams, facilitate medical staff committees and supervise pharmacy staff. Concentrated and longitudinal experiences develop resident mastery of team leadership, medication distribution and clinical practice management, medication use policy, quality and performance improvement, hospital regulation and accreditation, medication safety, and customer satisfaction.
The second year builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY-1 pharmacy residency to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. This year of the residency provides 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 certifications, if applicable.
