The Department of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is committed to providing advanced practice pharmaceutical services that individualize care for each child at St. Jude while supporting a collective research endeavor.
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
PGY2 residents in the individual programs learn, contribute and participate in dynamic environments that include professional and technical personnel in patient care and pharmaceutical research.
As a resident, you will have the opportunity to participate in direct patient care responsibilities, precept Doctor of Pharmacy students, provide didactic lectures, in-services and journal clubs, and participate in Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee meetings, as well as conduct collaborative clinical research. Residents are expected to develop and complete a research project during the year and present their findings at a regional meeting.
St. Jude offers three distinct ASHP-accredited and one ASHP-precandidate 12-month specialized pharmacy residency (PGY2) opportunities.
