Mercy Hospital of Buffalo PGY 2 Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency Program

Director’s Letter
Thank you for your interest in our newest Catholic Health PGY2 program in Emergency Medicine. The Catholic Health Pharmacy Department established a collaboration with the Department of Emergency Medicine several years ago and this relationship continues to expand within the system. The Pharmacy Department also recognizes the role of the PGY2 resident as an important step in the growth of this specialty area. This residency program is designed to develop the resident into a pharmacotherapy expert in the field of emergency medicine and will focus on critical thinking, communication, teaching, and leadership in patient care and quality improvement projects. Upon completion of the residency, the resident will have the necessary skills to function as an independent, competent emergency medicine practitioner with the ability to work with multidisciplinary teams and diverse patient populations. The PGY2 EM residency program focuses on community hospital emergency medicine with rotations across Western NY in the Catholic Health emergency departments. We are looking forward to meeting candidates interested in working in a team-based, fast-paced, and challenging work environment.
