PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency Program

The PGY2 residency program in ambulatory care is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from a generalist practice setting to a specialized practice specific to the needs of ambulatory patients.  The program is a collaborative effort between Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group and Touro University California to expand pharmaceutical care and existing teaching programs to pharmacy students completing their clinical clerkships in San Diego, CA.
Training sites for the residency program are primarily located at the Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Centers throughout San Diego County, but also include facilities within the Sharp HealthCare integrated health system.  The resident is expected to assume the role of a clinical ambulatory care pharmacist with focus on medication management within a variety of ambulatory settings.  In addition, the resident will have opportunities to practice and refine teaching skills, research, and practice management skills through precepting of pharmacy students, conducting clinical research projects, and assisting in the development of clinics integrating clinical pharmacists.  For those interested in further developing their teaching skills, participation in a teaching certificate program is available through the San Diego Pharmacy Residency Leadership (SDPRL) Teaching Program.
