PGY2 Clinical Pharmacogenomics Residency

The University of Florida College of Pharmacy’s PGY2 Clinical Pharmacogenomics Residency is a one-year program within the UF Health Precision Medicine Program and the College of Pharmacy for professionals who have completed an ASHP-accredited PGY1 pharmacy residency.

The purpose of the PGY2 Clinical Pharmacogenomics Residency at UF is to build on the Doctor of Pharmacy education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to develop clinical pharmacists who have the knowledge and skills needed to implement pharmacogenomics into clinical practice.

Program Highlights

Pharmacogenomics Clinic

The Pharmacogenomics Clinic is a collaboration between pharmacogenomics specialists and primary care physicians. 
Patients are seen in a two-visit model out of internal medicine and family medicine outpatient clinics. Clinic operates two half-days per week.

Educational Opportunities

Education opportunities include a UF College of Pharmacy teaching certificate; a UF College of Pharmacy leadership development series; and access to Graduate Program in Precision Medicine materials.

Pharmacogenomics Consultation Service

Pharmacogenomics specialists, including the resident, are notified when pharmacogenetic results are returned for UF Health patients. Patient-centered recommendations are then provided to the ordering clinician for consideration when making pharmacotherapy decisions.

IGNITE-II

UF is one of five sites involved in the IGNITE-II network. The pharmacogenomics resident is involved with the pragmatic clinical trials and, in turn, gains exposure to a large, multi-site research effort.
