program description

Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the Albany Medical Center Division of Community Endocrinology have enjoyed a collaborative relationship since 1997 and have offered a PGY2 endocrinology residency since 1999.

The endocrinology resident functions as a key member of the health care team and is accountable for achieving optimal drug therapy outcomes for their patients through work in the following areas:

Clinical Practice

The resident will work with patients, endocrinologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other clinicians on a daily basis and gain extensive training in ambulatory care adult medicine, endocrinology pharmacotherapy, and direct pharmaceutical care to patients.

Professional Development

The resident will be involved in activities that advance pharmacy practice in the region, including professional organizations and health care coalitions.

Teaching

The resident will participate in didactic teaching, in large and small classroom settings, as well as experiential teaching by precepting Pharm.D. students on rotations. The resident will also complete the Teaching and Learning Program developed by ACPHS specifically for residents and fellows.

Practice-Based Research

Completion and publication of a research project is expected, as is involvement with other scholarly projects throughout the year. This will include data analysis, poster and manuscript preparation, and presentation of results at a national pharmacy/medicine meeting.
