Multisite: *NMS Code 201615 - Student Health Services; NMS Code 201621 - Salud Medical Center; NMS Code 201622 - Benton County Health Services.
Residency Special Features: There are currently 3 residency sites available- OSU Student Health Services (Corvallis, OR), Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic (Woodburn and Salem, OR), and the Community Health Centers of Linn & Benton Counties (Corvallis, Lebanon and Sweet Home, OR). Each site accepts one resident.
The residency's mission is to prepare community-focused clinical pharmacists with advanced patient care and leadership skills for the delivery of diverse patient-centered care and pharmacy services. Each resident will primarily work at one site, but will have the opportunity to spend time at the other residency sites. The residency program will focus on developing pharmacists as leaders within the profession with an emphasis on the role of pharmacy in community health centers. The intent of the program is to prepare independent pharmacy practitioners to practice in a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
This program offers the opportunity for a resident pharmacist to: Provide direct patient care in ambulatory settings, participate in team based health care, and provide clinical pharmacy services in a patient-centered primary care home; Serve as an educator of patients and health care providers, as well as instruct and precept pharmacy students in various settings; Gain the skills and experience needed to operate and manage a community pharmacy; Facilitate interrelationships between, and within, the healthcare systems in our community to deliver high quality, culturally appropriate care and to improve patient transitions between care settings.
