The Pharmacy Postgraduate Year Two (PGY-2) Residency focuses on a specific specialty area (in this case,Ambulatory Care Pharmacy) and is intended to increase residents’ depth of knowledge, skills, attitudes and level of expertise in medication therapy management and clinical leadership in this focus area.
