Internal Medicine Residency (pdf)

Program Statement of Purpose


The PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Internal Medicine is designed to transition PGY1 Pharmacy resident graduates from a generalist to specialized practice focused on the care of adults with medical problems, primarily in the inpatient setting.


Program Philosophy


Residents who successfully complete the program will be able to provide integrated pharmaceutical care at a patient-specific level, as well as a patient population level across continuums of care. Furthermore, the program will provide residents with opportunities to conceptualize, integrate and transform accumulated experiences and knowledge into skills, competence and confidence in providing safe, efficient and cost-effective patient care.


Residents will develop a philosophy of practice that includes:

  • Pharmacists' responsibility and accountability for pursuing optimal drug therapy outcomes and medication safety in the provision of patient care
  • Education and training of other health professionals and students
  • A plan for self-learning and continuing professional development
  • A commitment to the profession and their community
  • An appreciation for scholarly activity

Residency Design


Program goals and objectives will be achieved through learning experiences designed to have the resident practice as an active member of the interdisciplinary care team (e.g. rounding, admission medication histories, medication reconciliation, discharge coordination, patient education, clinical monitoring, order verification, delegation protocols/collaborative practice agreements, pharmacist clinic visits). In addition, the resident will participate in the precepting/teaching of learners (i.e., pharmacy residents, interns and students), clinician education and quality improvement activities.
