The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program performed in the ambulatory care setting at Mission Hospital provides training, mentoring, and evaluation for pharmacists seeking additional education in a variety of ambulatory care areas.
The residency program develops ambulatory care practitioners who provide pharmaceutical care services across a wide range of disease states in innovative and interdisciplinary settings to meet patient centered outcomes. This program provides experiences relevant to current health system issues and future health care needs.
The ultimate goal of our program is to develop professional clinicians who have the clinical competence, problem solving, and leadership skills to enhance or develop patient care services.
The majority of the residency curriculum is longitudinal, allowing the resident to follow the outcomes of panels of patients throughout the year. Residents are responsible for providing pharmaceutical care to patients of all ages and patient education, monitoring for drug related problems, performing physical assessments, establishing therapeutic goals and communicating with patient providers. The curriculum also offers many opportunities for developing effective teaching skills. All of the required learning experiences offer the opportunity for precepting pharmacy students.
