About LIU @ The Brooklyn Hospital Center PGY2 Emergency Medicine
The purpose of our postgraduate year one (PGY1) residency program is to develop accountability; practice patterns; habits; and expert knowledge, skills, attitudes, and abilities in pharmacy practice. These programs will build upon Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
The purpose of our PGY2 programs is to build upon the broad-based competencies achieved in a PGY1 residency, deepening the resident's ability to provide care in the most complex of cases or in the support of care through practice leadership. Residents will have the opportunity to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and transforming both into improved medication therapy for patients. Upon completion of this program, the resident should possess the competencies that enable attainment of board certification and qualify for a career path in their respective specialty area.
Our Depar...tment of Pharmacy Services supports the goals of our residency programs.
