PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.


Interested applicants meeting the above criteria should electronically submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, academic transcripts, and three letters of recommendation through ASHP’s Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service (PhORCAS). PhORCAS​ is the required method of applying for this program. Please contact the Residency Program Director at for any questions concerning the application process.

Current Resident


Madhu Rao, PharmD

Madhumita (“Madhu”) Rao grew up in Natick, Massachusetts and completed her undergraduate studies and pharmacy school in a six-year program at Northeastern University. She finished her PGY-1 at UCH, and is so excited to continue her PGY-2 in solid organ transplant at the same institution! Her professional interests within transplant include infectious diseases and medication access and she is excited to improve upon her precepting and research skills. As a huge fan of sunshine and the outdoors, Madhu is looking forward to exploring more of Colorado during its 300 days of sunshine. Outside the hospital, Madhu can be found playing her piano, reading outside, jamming to Taylor Swift, and hiking. She's looking forward to year 2 of adventures here in CO!
