What makes UW Health’s Ambulatory Care Residency Program unique?
We have pharmacists embedded in ambulatory care areas throughout the organization. This allows for customization of experiences according to resident priorities. We train our residents to practice at the level of our pharmacists and build confidence and competence in service development and enhancement. Our established relationship with the UW-Madison School of Pharmacy and required precepting experiences allow for teaching opportunities throughout the residency year.
What goals do you have for residents who complete your residency program?
It is our goal for residents to practice in a variety of settings to further confirm career aspirations during the course of our residency. Graduates of the PGY2 ambulatory care residency program at UW Health are prepared for success as a clinical ambulatory care pharmacist capable of leading and managing ambulatory care services within a health care system, along with board certification in ambulatory care.
