Program Director: Jonathan McMahan, Pharm.D., BCPS
Available Positions: 4

This program provides residents with learning experiences in both acute care and ambulatory care settings. This program is designed to provide a balanced approach to resident development. Two specific tracks are available to tailor resident experiences and development toward care in the acute or ambulatory care settings. In the acute care track, residents have required learning experiences in acute care medicine, infectious diseases, critical care, ambulatory care, practice management and long-term care. Residents round and provide direct patient care on multidisciplinary teams, participate in robust antimicrobial stewardship, adverse event reporting and prior approval programs. In the ambulatory care track, residents have required learning experiences in ambulatory care, acute care, practice management and long-term care. Residents provide direct patient care in both interdisciplinary and pharmacist-run clinics. All residents receive additional experience in clinical intervention documentation, medication therapy management (MTM) and departmental committee service.
