The Gatton College of Pharmacy partners with local community pharmacies that participate in the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network (CPESN) to address the needs of patients with complex, chronic conditions. Additional innovative clinical services offered by the site include: transitional care programs, clinical medication synchronization, collaborative practice under a Clinical Pharmacist Provider (CPP) embedded in local provider offices, medication therapy management (MTM), immunizations, compounding, point-of-care testing, and other health and wellness services. The resident will broaden their clinical knowledge through active participation in patient care and interactions with experienced preceptors at the site. Additionally, the resident will play a key role in the implementation, expansion, and enhancement of services.
Other resident opportunities include: precepting pharmacy students at the practice site and during outreach events; participating in a Teaching and Learning Certificate program through the BGCOP; staffing requirements; and conducting a practice-based research project along with submission of a manuscript for publication. The program also provides other opportunities to hone professional presentation and teaching skills. The resident will join a group of residents and fellows affiliated with the College, allowing for collaboration, support, and encouragement throughout the residency year.
