The purpose of the ASHP-accredited PGY-2 ambulator care residency at St. Vincent is to build on the competencies achieved in a PGY-1 residency and develop clinical pharmacist who provide competent, safe, evidenced-based, cost-effective and highly reliable pharmacotherapy to ambulatory care patients. Achievement of a teaching certificate along with required multidisciplinary educational activities will provide the foundation upon which the resident can further develop his/her teaching skills in diverse didactic and clinical settings. Upon completion of the PGY-2 ambulatory care pharmacy residency program, the resident will be prepared to attain board certification and secure an ambulatory care position that incorporates both teaching and clinical components.
The philosophy of the ASHP-accredited ambulatory care pharmacy specialty residency at St. Vincent Indianapolis and the St. Vincent Joshua Max Simon Primary Care Center is to provide the resident with the opportunity to expand his/her knowledge and skills to provide comprehensive pharmaceutical care to ambulatory patients. This opportunity will be provided through active participation in evidence-based disease state management, patient/family and medical staff education, medication safety, primary and preventative care, outcomes-based research, education and scholarly activities, and collaborative drug therapy management. Experiences will provide the resident the ability to function independently as a specialist by conceptualizing, integrating and transforming accumulated experience and knowledge into optimal drug therapy for patients.
