Presbyterian’s year two residents work with licensed pharmacist clinicians (PhCs) within the patient-centered medical home to provide disease state and medication therapy management and oversee anticoagulation services. Opportunities in primary and specialty care are available and flexible to meet individual interests. Residents also engage in ambulatory care administrative activities at high levels within a large integrated healthcare system.
New Mexico is at the forefront of advanced practice licensure in pharmacy. New Mexico pharmacists may gain prescriptive authority as pharmacist clinicians (PhCs) and function as advanced practice clinicians at Presbyterian. Ambulatory care residents will complete requirements for PhC, including physical assessment coursework, documentation of patient contact hours, and development of a practice protocol.
