PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency Program
Become an Ambulatory Care Practitioner
The College of Pharmacy at NEOMED in conjunction with AxessPointe Community Health Centers offers a postgraduate year 2 (PGY2) ambulatory care residency program with an academic focus. The PGY2 program is designed to build upon the skills gained during a PGY1 year with an additional focus on managing an ambulatory care clinic. Residents will gain knowledge and skills necessary to grow and sustain an ambulatory care practice and develop essential academic leadership skills to be a clinical faculty member.
Residents will serve as the primary clinical pharmacist for an outpatient-based internal medicine clinic in Akron, Ohio. They will gain experience developing professional relationships with multiple healthcare providers in an underserved setting. One day per week will be spent in an academic setting with a focus on developing skills in course directorship, academic committee participation, and academic leadership.
