The Ambulatory Care PGY2 Residency at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy strives to create pharmacists as change agents who can develop, implement, and deliver patient care services in an ambulatory setting. The program is designed to foster the development of knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to pursue and/or create an ambulatory practice in a culture of encouragement and accountability. At both primary practice sites (OSU General Internal Medicine Clinics and PrimaryOne Health), the resident is embedded in an innovative primary care setting. Both sites are at the forefront of healthcare transformation and are utilizing pharmacists to provide high-value care to patients.
Pharmacists and residents practice at the top of their license delivering care in a team-based environment using collaborative practice agreements. Residents will graduate with skills in service development, evolving reimbursement models, population health initiatives, and progressive pharmacy practice.
