PGY2 Internal Medicine Pharmacy Residency: Memorial Hospital West

The PGY2 Internal Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program at Memorial Hospital West is a yearlong program designed to further develop pharmacists in the specialty area of Internal Medicine. The Internal Medicine Pharmacy Resident will function as an independent practitioner with learning experiences that serve to broaden their knowledge base, clinical skills and leadership skills.

The program allows the resident the opportunity to work with a diverse medical team and provide evidence-based and effective patient care. Upon program completion, residents are prepared to practice as a faculty member in an academic setting or as part of an interdisciplinary team responsible for the care of internal medicine patients.

The PGY2 Internal Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program is in Pre-candidate status by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
