The MSHP PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency program has been designed to foster the development of a clinician that is able to apply evidence-based medicine within various population health models or other advancing ambulatory care pharmacy settings. This will be achieved through interdisciplinary and independent learning opportunities in a variety of diverse clinical areas. Strengths of this program include longitudinal patient-centered care within interdisciplinary teams, numerous opportunities in population health management, and research. A focus will be on refining skills to manage chronic disease states, transitions of care, medication reconciliation, and care management. The resident will be providing direct patient care and research across practice sites that support MSHP value-based care initiatives. They will work in an environment that recognizes the value of credentialing pharmacists, and fosters advanced pharmacy practice through collaborative drug therapy management agreements.
