The PGY-2 ASHP accredited Ambulatory Care Residency is conducted in conjunction between the University of Texas, College of Pharmacy and the CommUnityCare Health Centers. It is a comprehensive, individualized, post-doctoral clinical pharmacy program designed to provide extensive training in ambulatory care. CommUnityCare clinic serves as a major teaching site for University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School family medicine residents, pharmacy residents, and Doctor of Pharmacy students from the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy. The goal of this ambulatory care residency program is to enable the resident to deliver state-of-the-art clinical pharmacy services to ambulatory care patients. The skills required to deliver high caliber pharmaceutical care will be developed through supervised, direct patient care in general pharmacy clinics that encompass chronic adult disease states. The pharmacy resident will be an integral component of the health care team at CommUnityCare. The residency training will also develop the resident’s teaching effectiveness and research skills. In addition to actively participating in various pharmacist-managed clinics, resident responsibilities include; supervision of Pharm.D. students on clinical rotations, presentation of lectures, in-service conferences, informal teaching of medical students and residents, teaching of pharmacists, and completion of a residency project suitable for presentation and publication.
Upon completion of training, the resident will have the ability to develop new clinical practice sites with an academic appointment (if desired). Previous residents have been competitive and successful in environments including full-time primary care clinical specialists, and half-time academic/half-time primary care clinical specialists.
Additionally, provided through the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy and CommUnityCare, the resident receives travel to professional meetings, and professional assistance with poster presentation preparation. Residents receive clinical instructor appointments with The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy.
