PGY2 Internal Medicine - Pharmacy - Careers - Eskenazi Health

PGY2 residency programs build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals, and objectives for advanced practice areas. Residents who successfully complete PGY2 residency programs are prepared for advanced patient care or other specialized positions, and board certification in the advanced practice area, if available.

The ASHP-accredited Eskenazi Health PGY2 Internal Medicine Pharmacy Residency prepares residents to successfully manage adult internal medicine patients with multiple co-morbid disease states. Residents will work alongside a multidisciplinary team at an academic safety-net medical center, focusing on the care of underserved patients with a variety of medical and socioeconomic backgrounds. Available teaching opportunities target medical professionals at all stages of training through in-services, precepting, didactic lectures and the teaching certificate program.

Upon successful completion of the residency program, residents will have achieved the following:

  • Serve as an authoritative resource on the optimal use of medications
  • Optimize the outcomes of internal medicine patients by providing evidence-based, patient-centered medication therapy as an integral part of an interdisciplinary team
  • Demonstrate excellence in the provision of training and educational activities for health care professionals and health care professionals in training
  • Demonstrate leadership and practice management skills
  • Contribute to the body of pharmacy knowledge in internal medicine
  • Evaluate, manage and improve the medication-use process

Early Commitment: The PGY2 internal medicine Program at Eskenazi Health will decide and communicate to internal residents whether the program will be pursuing early commitment that year.  This does not guarantee an internal resident will be offered early commitment.  Internal PGY1 residents may only apply to early commit to one PGY2 program within Eskenazi Health.
