This 12-month PGY-2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program provides resident the opportunity to accelerate their growth beyond entry-level competence in patient-centered care and to further the development of leadership and teaching skills that can be applied in any position and in any practice setting related to ambulatory care. At the end of the residency, the goal is for the resident to practice as an independent ambulatory care practitioner, to be a competent preceptor, and possess the skills necessary to develop their own ambulatory care practice.
The following requirements in service, leadership, management, practice development, and research are designed to enhance and further develop residents’ overall knowledge in order to become clinically and professionally competent practitioners by the end of the residency program.
