The Ambulatory Care PGY2 Residency at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy strives to create pharmacists to become change agents who can develop, implement, and deliver patient care services in the ambulatory setting. The program is designed to foster the development of knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to pursue and/or create an ambulatory practice in a culture of encouragement and accountability. At both primary practice sites (Primary One Health and OSU General Internal Medicine), the resident is embedded in an innovative primary care setting. Both sites are at the forefront of healthcare transformation and are utilizing pharmacists to provide high-value care to patients. Pharmacists and residents practice at the top of their license delivering care in a team-based environment using collaborative practice agreements. Residents training within the program will graduate with skills in service development, evolving reimbursement models, population health initiatives, and progressive pharmacy practice.

Patient care is the backbone of this residency experience. The resident will select one of two sites through the match process to be the primary site (at least 50% of time) for the residency. Primary One Health (P1H) is a federally qualified health center and is recognized as a NCQA tier 3 patient centered-medical home. P1H has ten locations throughout Columbus, all located within culturally and economically diverse neighborhoods. OSU General Internal Medicine (OSUGIM) is a network of 7 primary care patient-centered medical homes throughout the central Ohio area. Pharmacy residents at this site will interact with more than 90 medical residents and 40 attending physicians, and have access to more than 40,000 patients in an interdisciplinary education-based setting. Elective rotations will be customized to the resident and can include: Transitions of Care, Hepatitis C Medications Clinic, Antiarrhythmic Medication Monitoring, Chronic Pain Management, Cardiovascular Risk Reduction, Community Pharmacy, Academia, Medication Assistance, or Emergency Medicine.
The resident will participate in the education of PharmD students enrolled at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy. The resident will be assigned a course in the newly redesigned PharmD curriculum and will be involved in all aspects of planning, delivering, and assessment of that course. To facilitate learning, residents will be assigned a teaching mentor for teaching-related activities and have the opportunity to obtain a teaching certificate. Finally, all residents will precept IPPE and/or APPE students, lead topic discussions, and deliver educational presentations to other health care professionals.
The resident will be responsible for one major project to be presented as a poster at a regional/national meeting and as a podium at a residency conference in the spring. Preparation for submission as a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal is expected. The resident will be responsible for all aspects of the research project including: IRB application construction and submission, data collection and analysis, presentation of data, and manuscript writing. A small writing project is also expected of the resident.
The resident will participate in residency administration and have opportunities for both formal and informal leadership roles within the site and the program along with mentoring of PGY1 residents. Opportunities exist to engage in local, state, and national organizations for advocacy and/or leadership efforts. Finally, all residents will have the opportunity to apply for The Marialice and Jon Bennett Residency Leadership Training program, which partners one resident with a national organization for a unique, individualized leadership training opportunity.
