The PGY2 residency in Population Health Management and Data Analytics (PHMDA) builds upon PGY1 residency graduates’ competence in the delivery of patient-centered care and support of optimal medication therapy outcomes. The residency trains pharmacists to integrate health information, evidence-based medicine, outcomes measurement, and data analytics to inform decisions surrounding pharmacy services and population health management. Graduates are adept in discovering and optimizing synergy between clinical knowledge, information technology, and pharmaceutical operations, equipping them to function in a multifaceted professional environment and lead change to improve patient outcomes.

Graduates of this program will become skilled in concepts of population health management, applied pharmacoeconomic principles, and data analytics, thereby enabling them to create, implement, and optimize population health care initiatives designed to improve health outcomes of patients covered by government, managed care, or public/private health care systems, agencies, companies, and organizations.
