We have designed our PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency program to foster our residents' ability to apply evidence-based medicine within various population health models or other advancing ambulatory care pharmacy settings. We use interdisciplinary and independent learning opportunities in a variety of clinical areas to achieve this. Strengths of this program include longitudinal patient-centered care within interdisciplinary teams as well as numerous opportunities in population health management and research. We focus on refining skills to manage chronic disease states, transitions of care, medication reconciliation, and care management. We promote wellness and utilization of preventative services.
You will work longitudinally with patients, which will give you ample opportunity to build relationships and follow patients over time. You will be able to rotate within MSHP’s accountable care organization (ACO) and Track 1+ practices, and participate in drug information and quality improvement initiatives. Additionally, you may have opportunities to provide patient care in other therapeutic areas such as cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, nephrology, and pulmonology.
Population Health at a Glance
As a population health team, we contractually manage a set of patients longitudinally across all care settings. One of our responsibilities is to manage unnecessary and avoidable health care costs while focusing on preventive care and disease management. Pharmacists are uniquely able to offer clinical services strongly aligned with the shifts to value-based care. You will also gain the opportunity to support patients across traditional episodic care management, their managed care insurance providers and local community-based organizations.
