PGY2 Pharmacy Informatics Residency Program

Mission

The PGY2 Pharmacy Informatics Program embraces the Baptist Health Care (BHC) Mission of helping people throughout life’s journey.

Purpose

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.

Offering a combined focus on pharmacy informatics, medication safety and leadership, our program equips the resident with the tools to achieve a higher level of understanding for pharmacy informatics within today’s health care environment.
