Pharmacy Residency Program

Ambulatory Care Clinic

Clinical Services:

Clinical pharmacists, who specialize in Ambulatory Care, manage the Anticoagulation, Medication Management and Annual Wellness Visit Clinics. These specialty clinics are pharmacist-managed under approved protocols. Pharmacists also provide drug information, medication recommendations, patient education and drug use evaluations to Internal Medicine and Family Practice residents, attending physicians, medical and pharmacy students, and nurses during patients' clinic visits.

Specific Clinical Duties

Annual Wellness Visit Clinic

Medicare patients aged 65 and older are referred for an annual wellness visit. Care provided during these visits may include, but is not limited to: comprehensive medication review, immunizations, fall risk and cognitive assessments, and other preventative maintenance and screenings.

Anticoagulation Clinic (better known as Coumadin® Clinic)

Patients receiving anticoagulant therapy are referred to this clinic for anticoagulation management. Patients are evaluated by the clinical pharmacists for therapeutic range, adverse drug reactions, diet and medication compliance and recurrence of thrombotic events.

Medication Management Clinic

Patients are referred to this clinic if they have a history of non-adherence with medications, need closer follow-up, or are unable to meet their therapeutic goals with traditional medical management. The clinical pharmacist works very closely with each patient in an effort to optimize their disease state management and quality of life by improving pharmacological and non-pharmacological adherence and appointment compliance.
