PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency Program
Message from the Director
We are excited about sharing our PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program information with you because we are committed to developing clinicians and leaders for the future. Cone Health’s ASHP accredited Ambulatory Care focused residency program is diverse, challenging, flexible, and requires the resident to have a great deal of personal commitment and self-motivation in order to gain full benefit from the experience.

PGY2 Program Purpose
The Cone Health PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency program has been designed to foster the development of a clinical pharmacist who is able to apply evidence-based medicine and successfully practice in the ambulatory care environment. This will be achieved through interdisciplinary and independent learning opportunities in a variety of diverse clinical areas. The resident may also have opportunities to gain experience in population health with the medical group or Accountable Care Organization.
Thank you for your interest. We have decided to early commit for our 2021-2022 position.
Program Overview and Rotations
After an orientation period, the PGY2 ambulatory care resident will work closely with the program director to develop a rotation schedule individualized to the resident’s goals and residency requirements. This program will focus on training the resident to be an expert in ambulatory care pharmacotherapy and prepare him or her to work independently in an ambulatory practice setting. This will be accomplished by working closely with Clinical Pharmacist Practitioners, Triad HealthCare Network pharmacists, and Cone Health Medical Group physicians. Teaching opportunities include classroom instruction for pharmacy students as well as precepting pharmacy students and PGY1 pharmacy practice residents in a variety of clinics.
