Our year-long, ASHP-accredited PGY1 Community Residency has been training pharmacy residents since 1990. The program is housed in an outpatient clinic that embraces the patient-centered medical home model of care, which allows residents to become integral members of the clinical care team. Our structure takes advantage of a wide array of longitudinal learning experiences available through both the community pharmacy and outpatient clinic settings to provide direct patient care.
Graduates of this program gain experience managing chronic disease states under collaborative drug therapy agreements; gain insight on developing, innovating, and sustaining patient care programs; and learn first-hand how to effectively work as part of a multidisciplinary, patient-centered healthcare team. Upon completion of the program, residents have the skills needed to succeed in a career in ambulatory care or innovative outpatient pharmacy practice.

PMB Monroe serves rural Snohomish County and contains a primary care clinic with both family and internal medicine, pediatrics, a walk-in clinic, a variety of specialty services, an integrated dispensing pharmacy (Providence Pharmacy Monroe), and the pharmacist-run Medication & Anticoagulation Clinic.
