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.
MyRx pharmacogenomic testing is a service initiated by the UF College of Pharmacy to help people understand how their genes affect drug response. As a resident, you will have an opportunity to interact and support this program.
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 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.
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.
