The PGY-2 Pharmacy Informatics Residency Program at Baptist Health South Florida is a 12-month pharmacy specialty-training program in pre-candidate status seeking accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). It is designed to establish a foundation in pharmacy informatics knowledge and to develop the skills necessary to design, build, and maintain the various medication-related and pharmacy applications used throughout a health system.
The goal of the program is to develop well-rounded and effective pharmacy informaticists who strive to improve medication use processes by optimizing the functionality of medication-related and pharmacy applications while enhancing end user experience. This specialty residency program uses the general clinical knowledge and experience achieved during a PGY-1 residency and incorporates it into information technology. The program offers a wide variety of projects involving implementation and optimization of features in the electronic health record, along with opportunities for experience with automated dispensing cabinets, workflow and inventory management systems, and IV infusion pump drug libraries. Opportunities for teaching, research, quality improvement, and professional writing are integrated. Upon completion of the program, the graduating resident will be prepared for a variety of practice positions in pharmacy and information technology.
