Ambulatory Care

Residency Programs

PGY2 - Cary Healthcare Associates and Glenaire Retirement Community

The PGY2 residency offered in conjunction with CPHS at Cary Healthcare Associates and Glenaire Retirement Community provides the resident with advanced skills in patient management, therapy modification for special patient groups, acute care triage and chronic disease management. The development of these advanced skills occurs in primary care clinics and pharmacy-managed anticoagulation, lipid, and pharmacotherapy clinics.

The resident will also have involvement in the didactic and clinical training of other health care professionals and students, and gain experience in contributing original research to the professional literature. The program emphasizes providing patient care in Anticoagulation, Asthma, Diabetes Care, Lipid, and Pharmacotherapy clinics associated with medical residency teaching programs and in private practice environments.

The residency consists of a 12-month training program designed to comply with the ASHP requirements for a PGY2 ambulatory care residency. The resident will identify goals for the residency during the first two weeks of the residency. The remaining eleven months will be planned and devoted to meeting these goals with experiences in the following areas. The amount of time spent in each area will depend on the goals of the resident.

Rotations

  • Cary Healthcare Associates - Primary Site
  • Glenaire Retirement Center - Longitudinal Weekly Exposure
  • Duke Psychiatric Service - Elective Month Rotation

Teaching

The resident will participate in a teaching development series. Teaching skills will be applied during the Nonprescription Therapeutics course for second-year Doctor of Pharmacy students in didactic and case discussion sessions. The resident will help to supervise fourth-year student pharmacists on ambulatory care rotations at the clinical sites. The resident will present a continuing education seminar to pharmacists. There are opportunities to present lectures, topics at noon conference, and journal clubs. A certificate will be awarded to residents who complete the teaching development series.
