PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Residency

PGY2SOTgroup
Purpose of the Residency Program:
PGY2 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 or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

Mission Statement:
The pharmacist completing this PGY2 SOT pharmacy residency program will be qualified to independently manage the pharmaceutical care of solid organ transplant patients.  The pharmacist will work as part of the transplant multi-disciplinary team, consisting of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse coordinators, social workers, and case managers, to provide optimal pharmaceutical care in this patient population.  Additionally, the pharmacist will be capable to disseminate knowledge through teaching and educating patients, students, and other healthcare providers. The pharmacist will be able to conduct self-assessment and commit to continuous self-learning. Upon completion of this residency program, the pharmacist will be competitive for a role as a transplant clinical pharmacist.
