Binghamton University School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and SUNY Upstate University Hospital to co-sponsor a Post-Graduate Year 2 Geriatrics Pharmacy Practice Residency
Beginning with the 2017-18 academic year, Binghamton University School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS) and SUNY Upstate University Hospital will offer a PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Geriatrics.
Our first resident, Elizabeth Feldman, will gain advanced medication management skills through learning experiences in innovative geriatric emergency medicine and transitional care unit pharmacy practice models at SUNY Upstate’s Community Hospital Campus. She will also receive training in ambulatory clinical pharmacy services in one of SUNY Upstate’s geriatric clinics, and in clinical pharmacy services in long-term care at Good Shepherd Communities in Binghamton and Endwell, which are affiliated with SOPPS faculty. She will also participate in didactic and research activities on the SOPPS campus.
Binghamton University and SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital's new residency program is in pre-candidate status with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) and will undergo an ASHP accreditation survey within the inaugural year.
