Program Philosophy

This PGY2 psychiatric pharmacy residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of psychiatric clinical pharmacists. This program provides 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 this PGY2 psychiatry residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with BCPP.
