The Oregon State University (OSU) PGY2 ambulatory care residency is offered in collaboration with Oregon Health Science University (OHSU) Family Medicine at Richmond (FMR). Richmond is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and level 3 Patient Centered Primary Care Home. This is a 12 month program designed to develop expertise in ambulatory care disease state management in a complex and underserved population of Portland, OR. Rotations are longitudinal in nature. The resident will work under collaborative drug therapy management (CDTM) agreements and provide direct patient care visits. Current CDTM agreements include tobacco cessation, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hepatitis C, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Residents will also collaborate with primary care providers, nurses, behavioral health and other clinical staff. Residents will have the opportunity to develop and implement a new clinical service for Richmond to further enhance patient care.
PGY2 residents have the opportunity to participate in case facilitation in the pharmacy practice course and selected lectures in the integrated drug therapy course with third-year pharmacy students. Opportunities for experiential precepting of fourth year students throughout their ambulatory care rotation are also available.
Residents are required to complete one major project within the clinic. Data gathered from the project will be presented with an ASHP Midyear Meeting poster and written in a publishable manuscript. Residents are also given the opportunity to partner with college faculty members to complete various academia-focused projects.
Residents are also required to work with the Drug Use Research and Management (DURM) team. The DURM team is a partnership between Oregon State University College of Pharmacy and the state Oregon Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee. The resident will be expected to prepare an editorial newsletter, as well as a medication utilization evaluation (MUE) on assigned topics.
