LENGTH OF RESIDENCY:
This post-graduate second year residency in Ambulatory Pharmacy Practice is a flexible, directed postgraduate program of clinical experience in outpatient settings. The ambulatory care resident will gain a broad range of experience within an academic VA healthcare system. What sets this residency apart is its flexibility and continuity of care. In addition, the curriculum is flexible and allows the pharmacist to pursue specific interests that best complement their career goals. This is achieved by choosing from a variety of core and elective clinical rotations that are structured to build upon previous learning experiences.
