Rotations Pharmacy Residency PGY-2

The Ambulatory Care PGY-2 Residency at Beaumont, Royal Oak consists of four 3-month block rotations in which the resident receives training in different clinic sites during the course of a week. Using information gathered from the resident baseline assessment and the resident's interests, an individualized training plan is developed. Resident training experience consists of varying half days per week of longitudinal experience in the Internal Medicine/Primary Care Clinic, Diabetes Clinic as well as the Outpatient Clinic Anticoagulation Service for the duration of the residency program (12 months). During each three-month block the resident attends each specific clinic on the same day/half-day of the week.

The first 3-month rotation is Orientation where the resident can establish a presence in the clinic and develop a rapport with the physicians. The resident will rotate through the Diabetes Clinic, Anticoagulation, Internal Medicine and Pulmonary Clinics.  During the first quarter, the Residency Program Director and resident meet to discuss growth and review the individualized training plan to re-assess the residents’ goals. Based upon this discussion and the quarterly evaluation at the end of the first quarter, subsequent rotations are determined. The rotation schedule is subject to change throughout the year based on resident performance as well as interests. Residents continue to maintain longitudinal clinic experiences during the second, third and fourth quarters.
