Purpose Statement: This PGY2 pharmacy residency program builds on doctor of pharmacy education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice. This PGY2 ambulatory care residency provides a pharmacist the opportunity to function independently as a practitioner by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete this program should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in ambulatory care.
Program Overview: The PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency at Mission Hospital and UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is designed to provide advised training in ambulatory care for a pharmacist in the areas of population health management, transitions of care, primary care, and rural healthcare. This ambulatory care pharmacist will develop or enhance innovative services to deliver pharmaceutical care to individuals and populations of patients. A strong focus is placed on strengthening leadership skills and developing innovative and technology-based pharmacy practice models.
Curriculum: The majority of the residency curriculum is longitudinal, which allows the resident to develop long term relationships with patients and colleagues allowing for greater impact on care design and implementation of pharmacy services. Residents provide pharmaceutical care for patients of all ages and provide patient education, monitor for drug-related problems, perform physical assessments, establish therapeutic goals and communicate findings, interventions, and suggestions with primary care physicians. In multiple practice sites, residents have the opportunity to participate in the Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner model.
