The PGY-2 Cardiology Residency Program at Baptist Hospital is a 12-month pharmacy specialty-training program seeking accreditation form the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP). It is designed to establish a foundation of cardiovascular knowledge and to develop the skills and practice trends necessary to deliver highly specialized pharmaceutical care.
The goal of the program is to develop independent pharmacy practitioners to become integral members of the cardiology multidisciplinary team. This specialty residency program builds upon the general competencies achieved during a PGY-1 residency, expanding the ability of residents to provide care for complex cardiovascular patients in a variety of settings. The training is coordinated to allow residents to master each of the disease states established within the ASHP Practice Standards for PGY-2 residency in cardiology. It empowers residents to function as independent practitioners with the ability to incorporate both knowledge and experience into outcomes-driven medication therapy. Opportunities for teaching, research, quality improvement, and professional writing are integrated. Upon completion of this program, the graduating residents will be prepared to seek board certification in cardiology and will have the necessary expertise to exercise clinical and leadership abilities as a cardiology clinical specialist.
