PGY2 Pharmacy Ambulatory Care

2018-2019 PGY2 Resident, Elizabeth Ramsaur, PharmD

Program Overview

This PGY2 residency program is conducted at Mission Hospital in partnership with the University Of North Carolina Eshelman School of Pharmacy in Asheville, North Carolina.  Our residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice. Our PGY2 residency provides residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy.  Residents who successfully complete this accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in ambulatory care practice.

Our PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency is designed to provide advanced training in Ambulatory Care for a pharmacist in the areas of population health management, transitions of care, primary care, and rural healthcare. This ambulatory care pharmacist will develop innovative services to identify and deliver pharmaceutical care to individual and populations of patients. A strong focus is placed on strengthening leadership skills, using data analytics to support decision processes, developing technology based care models while promoting services for people living in rural areas through academia and hospital based efforts. Residents are prepared as ambulatory care pharmacists to design and implement pharmaceutical care services for individual and populations of patients within an Accountable Care Organization.

The resident has a role in developing pharmacists’ services in transitions of care, outpatient clinical pharmacy services, and rural population health management.
