This innovative PGY2 in Ambulatory Care with an emphasis in Academia will embed a resident into a medical practice that does not have a clinical pharmacy presence with the goal of creating a sustainable and replicable clinical pharmacy service.
The mission of the PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency at the Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) and the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is to provide advanced training for the clinical ambulatory care pharmacist in the areas of comprehensive medication management and interprofessional practice innovation. This residency will create a network of clinical pharmacists adept at infusing sustainable, replicable pharmacotherapy services into the physicians’ office utilizing contemporary healthcare models. A strong focus is placed on strengthening leadership skills, research techniques, and pedagogical approaches in order to effectively share models of success with the medical community.

Establishing and growing clinical pharmacy services
Teaching learners of multiple disciplines at various levels of training
Developing leadership skills to advocate for the pharmacy profession at local, state, and national levels.
