PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency

We are excited to be recruiting for our first PGY2 Emergency Medicine Resident for the 2024-2025 residency year!

About the Program

The PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program is based primarily at Hartford Hospital with time spent at the University of St. Joseph School of Pharmacy and Physician Assistant Studies, and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.  In addition to an intensive emergency medicine curriculum, residents will gain experience in toxicology, pediatric medicine, intensive care, pre-hospital care, and emergency preparedness. The residency has a strong academia focus with significant exposure to didactic and clinical experiential education at the University of Saint Joseph School of Pharmacy and Physician Assistant Studies. The resident will also complete a research project, create and present an ACPE accredited continuing education program, and lead quarterly journal club discussions. The resident will have the opportunity to complete a number of elective experiences in infectious diseases, intensive care units, pain management, as well as community emergency medicine at a surrounding Hartford Healthcare facility.

Residency Program Purpose

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.
