About the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program offered in Ambulatory Care Settings


The purpose of The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program offered in Ambulatory Care Settings is to provide the resident with experience and confidence to:

  •   Be change agents who can develop, implement, and deliver patient care
  •   Pursue practice, leadership, and academic positions in ambulatory care settings

This PGY1 program fosters development of knowledge, skills and abilities needed to provide outstanding direct patient care and to educate current and future practitioners in ambulatory care settings. This program consists of one primary site with strong pharmacy presence in patient-centered medical homes.


IM Clinic 2OSU General Internal Medicine Clinic 

The OSU General Internal Medicine Clinics are a network of 6 NCQA tier 3 patient centered-medical homes and the primary outpatient sites for the nationally-recognized Ohio State Internal Medicine Residency program.

Pharmacy residents at this site will interact with more than 80 medical residents, 20 attending physicians, and have access to more than 40,000 patients in an interdisciplinary clinic setting. The pharmacy resident has opportunities to work with physicians to design therapeutic plans for the management of chronic disease states such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes, anticoagulation, asthma, chronic non-malignant pain and depression/anxiety, along with a variety of acute care issues.

Patient interaction is encouraged through diabetes and asthma device teaching, individualized medication counseling, comprehensive medication reviews, and transitional care management.

Providers within the clinic refer patients to an interdisciplinary diabetes management clinic, where, an interdisciplinary team provides individualized care, goal setting and disease education to patients with poorly controlled diabetes. Pharmacists follow up between clinic visits to titrate medications and assess patient progress toward goals. Additionally, pharmacists at the OSU General Internal Medicine clinics provide timely care for patients during transitions of care, complete comprehensive medication reviews through the OutcomesMTM platform, and participates in population health initiatives.

The pharmacy resident plays a vital role in providing answers to drug information questions and educating other health care providers on pertinent medication-related issues. The pharmacy resident also develops and delivers educational presentations to medical residents as part of an ambulatory curriculum.

The primary clinic is located at the Martha Morehouse Medical Plaza, adjacent to The Ohio State University.


The residency focuses primarily on Direct Patient Care and Practice Management. The resident will participate in direct patient care activities at the primary site. A required Dispensing Learning Experience is completed at one of a variety of  community pharmacy sites. The resident will also be involved in teaching within the PharmD curriculum at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy and has the opportunity to earn a formal teaching certificate. The resident will be expected to complete and publish at least one major research project. The program is intended to have some flexibility and can be customized depending on the individual resident’s interests and needs. Elective opportunities at other sites are also available. Past residents have completed longitudinal experiences in Academic, Pain and Palliative Care, and Anticoagulation Management.
