Medication Use Safety and Policy PGY-2 Residency


This residency is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from generalist practice to specialized roles as an organizational leader in the development of safe and effective medication-use processes and policies. The program is designed to develop residents into experts in analyzing, synthesizing, and disseminating medication-related information and stewards of evidence-based medication utilization across a health system. Graduates will possess the advanced facilitation skills to inform the organization’s policy-making bodies, influence their decision making, and participate in the management of the decision-making process. The superior communication skills developed in this residency enable a graduate to function as a leader for activities such as conducting mediation safety initiatives and drug information practice-related projects.
