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.

Hannah Roppo

Originating from a southwest suburb of Chicago, Hannah Roppo spent the majority of her life in the Midwest. She attended the University of Iowa for her undergraduate studies in Human Physiology followed by her Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Pursuing her lifelong dream, Hannah moved out west for her PGY1 training at Oregon Health & Science University. She’s grateful for the opportunity to continue her training at UCHealth as the PGY2 in Solid Organ Transplant. Hannah spends her free time reading, practicing yoga, performing plant mom duties, and finding new recipes to whip together. Of course, as a Midwesterner, she’s also excited to explore CO through hiking, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding!
