PGY2 Internal Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program



The purpose of this PGY2 residency in internal medicine is to prepare the post-doctoral resident to serve as a highly skilled and knowledgeable internal medicine clinical pharmacist in a hospital setting and full-time or adjunct faculty member.


The residency program is based at Oklahoma State University Medical Center in the department of Internal Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma. OSU Medical Center is a 195-bed hospital serving the Tulsa metro and surrounding areas and is the largest osteopathic teaching facility in the nation. More than 150 medical residents are trained on an annual basis and countless medical, nursing, and pharmacy students rotate through the facility continuously. The pharmacy team consists of 17 pharmacists, including 12 residency-trained clinical pharmacists who work in internal medicine, family medicine, ICU, emergency medicine, HIV, diabetes education/management, and other specialties.

This one-year position is offered in partnership with the Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy (SWOSU COP) and provides the resident with the academic rank of Voluntary Instructor in Pharmacy Practice. This partnership allows the resident the opportunity to actively participate in didactic and laboratory teaching activities at the College or Pharmacy as well as didactic teaching at the OSU College of Medicine.

SWOSU COP is located in Weatherford, OK (approximately 1 hour west of Oklahoma City). The average class size is 40 students, which allows for a favorable faculty-student ratio. The SWOSU College of Pharmacy has maintained a tradition of excellence in pharmacy education since its founding in 1939. Southwestern COP is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. Southwestern consistently ranks as one of the best values in pharmacy education among colleges of pharmacy across the nation, as measured by educational outcomes and cost of education. The College of Pharmacy prides itself on providing pharmacy students the knowledge and skills they will need for a successful career in pharmacy.
