PGY2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency

About Us

Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) is a part of Baylor Scott & White Health and located in downtown Dallas, TX. As the flagship hospital for a 26-hospital health system, our institution is an integral part of driving change within the system. BUMC is a designated Level 1 Trauma Center, Comprehensive Stroke Center, Chest Pain Center and ECMO Center of Excellence with a state-of-the-art 85-bed emergency department that averages over 100,000 visits per year.

The BUMC Emergency Medicine (EM) PGY2 residency program was initiated in July 2021 and is actively working toward accreditation through the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). The purpose of this program is to develop confident, well-rounded emergency medicine clinicians prepared to serve as leaders in clinical service, research, and teaching.  

We currently accept one resident per year.

Curriculum

The EM PGY2 residency program at BUMC is designed to advance the resident’s skills and knowledge in emergency medicine through intensive training in a variety of practice settings. Pharmacists completing this residency program will provide comprehensive pharmaceutical care to ensure safe and cost-effective drug therapy while serving as an integral member of the emergency medicine interdisciplinary team. They will be equipped to contribute to the development of practice guidelines and pharmacotherapy policy, and to improve the efficiency and safety of the medication-use system. They will function as an impactful educator for pharmacy students and residents, other healthcare professionals, and patients in the communities they serve.
