New Mexico is at the forefront of advanced practice licensure in pharmacy. New Mexico pharmacists may gain prescriptive authority as pharmacist clinicians (PhCs) and function as advanced practice clinicians within Presbyterian Healthcare Services. The ambulatory care resident will complete requirements for PhC licensure, including physical assessment coursework, documentation of patient contact hours, and development of a practice protocol.
The first half of the residency year is spent in primary care patient-centered medical homes under the supervision of licensed pharmacist clinicians (PhCs) treating disease states including, but not limited to, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and pulmonary conditions, supervising anticoagulation services and performing medication therapy management.
The second half of the year adds specialty experience while allowing continuity in primary care. Unlisted experiences may be available based on resident interests.
Requirements for administrative activities, teaching/precepting, and the resident research project will be fulfilled longitudinally.
