The Ambulatory Care Residency Program (PGY 2) at Parkland is an organized, directed, postgraduate training program that centers on development of the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to pursue advanced practice clinical management of patients with chronic disease states. It is a 12-month training program structured to develop the resident’s competence in multiple areas of ambulatory care in which clinical pharmacy services are being provided in our institution. The resident will be involved in the various stages of clinical service development throughout the residency year. Disease states include diabetes management (inpatient/outpatient),heart failure (inpatient/outpatient), hypertension, lipids, endocrine disorders, pain management, asthma, hepatitis C and anticoagulation. The resident will advance their teaching certificate portfolios through student and resident interactions both in clinical as well as in didactic settings.
Residents are directly involved in all direct patient care activities through a collaborative drug therapy management agreements, mentoring of other pharmacists, health care disciplines and pharmacy students, developing their own practice styles, managing clinic responsibilities independently, identifying and solving drug therapy related problems, participating in management decisions, and working independently on assigned projects from preceptors and/or administrators.
