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 academic-setting 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 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
Residents will participate in four blocks of required clinical rotations. In addition, the resident may select up to three elective blocks of rotations from a broad range of available specialty experiences.

Required Rotations:
  • Internal medicine (10-weeks)
  • Critical care (10-weeks)
  • Infectious disease
  • Oncology
Elective Rotations:
Remaining 5-week rotations are elective based on individual interest and availability. Options include:
  • Academic/teaching
  • Ambulatory care - anticoagulation clinic
  • Cardiology
  • Nutrition
  • Patient safety/administration
  • Internal Medicine (focus specialties)
  • Cardiology
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology
  • Pulmonolgy
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Inpatient Anticoagulation
  • Other areas of interest are available throughout the St. Louis area and may be explored at the resident's request.
During rotations, residents spend an appropriate amount of time under direct faculty preceptorship and the remainder of the time on their own service and assist in precepting students. The residency preceptor meets regularly with the resident to provide advice and feedback, share clinical expertise, guide student precepting activities, and ensure backup clinical coverage.

The resident will complete a residency project suitable for publication. Library services, computer resources, audiovisual support, travel funds and full benefits are provided. Attendance at local, regional and national professional meetings is encouraged.
