PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy

Thank you for your interest in the PGY2 Emergency Medicine Specialty Residency at UNC Medical Center.  We are excited that you are considering joining the UNC family, as well as our long and rich tradition of residency training and emergency medicine practice.

UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, NC is a public 804 bed, tertiary care, level one trauma and burn center. The emergency department at UNC has approximately 65,000 patient visits a year. The patient population is very diverse: visiting from all over the state and beyond, both urban and rural areas; varied pay source with 20% uninsured, 30% Medicare, and 20% Medicaid; and different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds including 15% self-identified as Hispanic or Latino. The ED acuity is high, with an admission rate of just over 30%. 

Program Purpose 

PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

Additional Program Description

Our program develops well-rounded clinicians, with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to define excellence in emergency medicine pharmacy.  Our goal is to provide you with the experiences necessary to practice emergency medicine clinical pharmacy at the highest possible level; to be a leader in the profession, the community, and your practice setting; and to be a teacher and mentor that inspires and empowers the next generation of pharmacists.
