PGY2-Pharmacy Residency Programs
There are numerous types of Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) residencies that you can explore. The term specialization is used interchangeably with PGY2 since all PGY2 residency programs lead to increased specialization. A PGY2 residency require that an applicant complete a Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) residency first. Therefore, a PGY2 is designed to build upon those competencies developed by a PGY1. All ASHP accredited residencies are full time commitments and will take about a year to complete. PGY2 residencies participate in the Resident Matching Program (RMP). Some programs that offer both PGY1 and PGY2 residencies may offer a PGY1 resident an "early commitment offer" to stay at their organization to complete a PGY2.
Some options for accredited PGY2 residencies include:
Health-system pharmacy administration
