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 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.

The pharmacist will participate in the direct care of those patients with chronic, uncontrolled disease. In all settings, patients are scheduled to physically see the clinical pharmacy specialist. The interventions may include: initiating and modifying therapy, ordering labs, providing patient education, and teaching the use of medical devices. Physical assessment and triaging skills will be used routinely. Preceptors and/or attending physicians are always available for consultation.

Clinical expertise in other subspecialty areas will be developed through elective rotations in additional specialized clinic settings. Other opportunities for the resident include precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students and first year residents and professional advocacy through state and national associations.
