The Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill in New Jersey builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education to help clinicians develop the skills they need to become successful clinical ambulatory care pharmacists. Residents who complete an accredited or candidate PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic or other specialized positions, along with board certification in pharmacy.
What Makes Inspira’s PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Unique
Inspira’s PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency provides residents with learning opportunities that integrate and incorporate various patient care experiences and advanced practice settings across South Jersey. With comprehensive curricula and dedicated faculty, our residency programs focus on industry-leading research, cutting-edge treatment methods and safe, high-quality patient care.
The PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency focuses on population health models in all rotations. Today’s ambulatory care-trained pharmacists have to be able to apply the “triple aim” in the ambulatory setting. Graduates of our program will be able to apply this model of care in any area of clinical pharmacy practice.
Message from Program Director
The Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency PGY2 offers a robust curriculum and access to experienced, supportive faculty in convenient locations throughout South Jersey. Each specialty program includes weekly didactics, attending and guest lecturers and clinical experiences.
PGY2 residency programs build upon Pharm.D. education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to help pharmacist practitioners expand their knowledge, skills and abilities to achieve their goals and objectives for advanced practice areas. Our goal is to prepare pharmacists for advanced patient care or other specialized positions as well as board certification in the advanced practice area, if applicable.
