Program Philosophy

I believe a PGY2 residency is meant to hone leadership, clinical, teaching and research skills via independent learning with strong mentorship. Residents will leave the program prepared for any clinical psychiatric pharmacy or faculty position.

Site Special Features

Residency is part of an academic medical center with strong ties to area county mental health centers and robust Psychiatry Residency and Fellowship programs. PGY2 Psychiatric pharmacy residents work closely with the Psychiatry residents and fellows.
