Goals of the PGY-2 internal medicine pharmacy residency program at EUH include:
Clinical practice/service: Residents optimize pharmacotherapy for a diverse patient population at Emory Healthcare Hospital and Emory University Hospital Midtown. Residents hone pharmacokinetic dosing skills for a variety of patient populations. Throughout the year, residents increase autonomy in patient care and become involved in pharmacy organizations at a regional and/or national level.
Scholarship: Residents develop and execute a clinical research project requiring Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. Residents publish at least one manuscript.
Teaching: Residents receive the title of "Adjunct Clinical Instructor" from Mercer University College of Pharmacy and co-precept APPE pharmacy students to improve their experiential teaching skills. Residents provide at least one didactic lecture and assist with course coordination during a required rotation at Mercer University College of Pharmacy. Residents also teach members of the health care team, including physicians, medical students, pharmacists, nurses and other allied health professionals.
