Program description

The PGY2 emergency medicine pharmacy residency at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center is a 12-month ASHP candidate status program that provides the resident with advanced training in emergency medicine. The purpose of the program is to instill and develop the skills necessary to practice independently as a member of the interdisciplinary team. Residents will have the opportunity to become integrated into our advanced pharmacy practice model, respond to medical emergencies, provide education to patients and staff, and participate in pharmacy consult services. The PGY2 emergency medicine residency program allows flexibility to meet the needs and interest of each individual resident while also providing a quality foundation in developing professional practice skills.
