Learning Experiences

Core Learning Experiences (All Longitudinal)

Direct patient care. Use of clinical pharmacy agreements with a focus on diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, mental health, and pain. Most of resident time is spent in clinic with an emphasis on direct patient care and integration into the medical home team.

Health education. Residents share their expertise with primary care teams and pharmacy learners (APPE students and PGY1 residents). The goal is to ensure the resident can understand, evaluate and teach primary literature.

Practice management. Leadership and independence are critical skills for ambulatory care pharmacists. Residents will manage projects, take part in interdisciplinary workgroups and collaborate with care teams.

Evidence-based medicine. Residents are a resource for clinic providers and patients with general questions about pharmacotherapy, and also provide evidence-based responses to questions from providers. Residents provide certified continuing medical education for pharmacists and physicians.

Leadership/management. Residents will work with pharmacy leaders to improve pharmacy services across the health system.

Non-longitudinal Experiences

The resident will complete non-longitudinal experiences outside of the core rotations. Geriatrics and endocrinology are required rotations; the resident will have flexibility to adjust other non-longitudinal experiences.

  • Geriatrics
  • Behavioral Health
  • Endocrinology
  • Academia
  • Administration
  • Managed Care

In addition to the core learning experiences, residents will participate in other activities to gain knowledge, practice-management skills, presentation and teaching abilities, and professional leadership.
