About the PGY2 Ambulatory Care – College of Pharmacy Residency Program


PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build 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. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in that practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists).

The purpose of The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency Program is to create a specialist in ambulatory care practice and leadership who is able to cultivate and manage an interprofessional practice and serve as a leader for the profession of pharmacy. The graduate will be well trained to participate in team-based care and educate current and future providers of team-based care.

This PGY2 program is intended to develop practitioners interested in ambulatory care by providing advanced-level post-graduate training and formative experiences in a ambulatory and College of Pharmacy environments. Graduates will develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to be successful in ambulatory pharmacy settings. This includes patient-centered team-based care, research and scholarship, and didactic and experiential teaching opportunities.

Primary One Health
Primary One Health (P1H) is a federally qualified health center and is recognized as a NCQA tier 3 patient centered-medical home. P1H has eleven locations throughout Columbus, all located within culturally and economically diverse neighborhoods. P1H’s commitment to high-quality service, personal patient care, and access to state-of–the-art technology enables us to remain the fastest growing urban health center in central Ohio.

Patients at P1H have access to primary healthcare, dental and vision services, nutrition planning, diabetes education, and other specialty medical services for the entire family.  Pharmacy residents at this site will interact with physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, dieticians, and other members of the health care team on a daily basis.  At P1H, the resident will care for culturally diverse and underserved patients, including working with interpreters, aiding with medication assistance programs, and facilitating 340b participation.

Residents will also work with patients and providers to design therapeutic treatment plans for the management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, tobacco use, and more.  Clinical pharmacy services at P1H are operated on an appointment-based model, which includes both face-to-face and telephonic care.  Pharmacists are valued for their contributions in answering medication-related questions and educating providers and health center staff on medication-related topics.  In addition to providing direct patient care, the resident will engage in practice management activities, including participating in monthly pharmacy team meetings and P&T committee and assisting with ongoing projects and new service development.

OSU General Internal Medicine Clinic

OSU General Internal Medicine (OSUGIM) is a network of 7 primary care patient-centered medical homes throughout the central Ohio area and is the primary outpatient site for the nationally-recognized Ohio State Internal Medicine Residency program.

Pharmacy residents at this site will interact with more than 90 medical residents, 40 attending physicians, and have access to more than 50,000 patients in an interdisciplinary education-based setting across the network. The pharmacy resident has opportunities to work with physicians in helping 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. Collaborative practice opportunities exist with the team-based environment.

Patient interaction is encouraged through diabetes and asthma device teaching, individualized medication counseling, comprehensive medication review, and transitional care management. The partnership was awarded the 2015 APhA Foundation Pinnacle Award for Group Practices in recognition of their innovative work. OSU General Internal Medicine is currently enrolled in the Comprehensive Primary Care-Plus (CPC+) program and a Million Hearts Model initiative.

Providers within the clinic refer patients to our multidisciplinary diabetes and polypharmacy clinics, where, a team of attending and resident physicians, pharmacists and a social worker provide individualized care, goal setting and disease education to patients. Pharmacists follow up between clinic visits to titrate medications and assess patient progress toward goals. Additionally, pharmacists  provide timely care for patients during transitions of care, complete comprehensive medication reviews through the OutcomesMTM platform, and engage in the development and execution of population health strategies.

The pharmacy resident plays a vital role in providing answers to drug information questions and educating other health care professionals 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.
