PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency Program

Kaweah Health PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency

Kaweah Health (Kaweah Health) is committed to producing PGY2-trained ambulatory care clinical pharmacists that exhibit leadership, evidence-based practice and service to the community. The Kaweah Health PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency program will build on the skills and knowledge gained in accredited PGY1 training programs. The program will provide advanced professional practice and management activities where residents will gain in-depth experience in a more independent role leading to advanced practice skills and knowledge of the integration of pharmacy services with the comprehensive needs of individual practice settings. Upon completion, residents will have gained the skills and experience needed to establish advanced and innovative services in the ambulatory clinic environment; leverage population health and novel payment strategies to support ambulatory pharmacy services; become a leader within the healthcare team; and, effectively advocate for the delivery of quality care and outcomes.
