Family Medicine

The resident has direct patient care responsibilities with a focus on continuity of care. Pharmacists practice under a robust collaborative practice agreement that allows for independent clinical decision making. Residents maintain an individual patient schedule and establish their own patient panel. Pharmacists are highly integrated into the Patient Centered Medical Home making the standard of care interdisciplinary.

Required Experiences

Residents are required to have a minimum of 400 hours of experience (not including IPPE) in both community and inpatient pharmacy settings. A highly effective ambulatory care pharmacist has baseline knowledge across the continuum of care and acts as a liaison between practice settings. If a resident’s previous experiences do not meet the one of the 3 month minimums, the experience will be built into the resident’s customized learning plan.
