PGY-2 Specialty Pharmacy Residency in Internal Medicine

Program Goals
The purpose of this training program is to prepare role model practitioner-educators for entry into specialized clinical pharmacy positions or academia or faculty positions.
This is accomplished by:
  • Practicing in multidisciplinary patient care settings in internal medicine and related subspecialties.
  • Receiving formal instruction and mentoring in didactic and experiential teaching methods by partnering with St. Louis College of Pharmacy.
  • Co-precepting and primary precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students in clinical clerkships.
  • Enhancing verbal and written communication skills through clinical practice activities, didactic teaching, seminar presentations and community health symposiums.
Program Design
One Pharmacy PGY21 Residency spot is available. The resident will participate in seven months of required clinical rotations. The resident will also be expected to primary precept an APPE acute care student during one of these blocks, based on rotation schedules. In addition, the resident may select up to three months of rotations from a broad range of available specialty experiences.

Required Rotations:
  • Internal Medicine (two months)
  • Critical Care (Medical ICU) (two months)
  • Infectious Disease (one month)
  • Oncology (one month)
  • Cardiology (one month)
Elective Rotations:
  • Ambulatory Care - anticoagulation clinic
  • Nutrition
  • Administration/Management
  • Internal Medicine (focus specialties)
    • Cardiology
    • Nephrology
    • Neurology
    • Pulmonology
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Inpatient Anticoagulation
  • Longitudinal Anticoagulation
  • Critical Care (Surgical ICU)
  • Other areas of interest are available throughout the St. Louis area and may be explored at the resident's request.
Other: Orientation (July), Research (December)

During rotations, the resident spends an appropriate amount of time under direct faculty preceptorship and the remainder of the time on his/her own service and assisting with precepting students. The rotation preceptor meets regularly with the resident to provide advice and feedback, share clinical expertise, guide student precepting activities and ensure back-up clinical coverage.

Other Activities:
The resident will enroll in a formal teaching workshop series, REA, conducted primarily during the fall semester at St. Louis College of Pharmacy, if a similar experience has not already been completed or a teaching certificate has not been achieved or obtained.

The resident will also complete a residency longitudinal research project suitable for publication along with a formal seminar presentation during the fall. Attendance at local, regional and national professional meetings is encouraged.
