PGY-2 Ambulatory Care Residency
The University of Mississippi offers a comprehensive post-graduate training experience with a PGY-2 Ambulatory Care Residency Program. The program offers two positions based in the School of Pharmacy on the University of Mississippi Medical Center campus in Jackson, Mississippi. The program offers unique opportunities for precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students, PGY-1 Community and Pharmacy Practice residents and advanced clinical opportunities in a variety of practice settings, with a strong emphasis on preparing residents to become leaders in pharmacy practice. Research opportunities exist within the School of Pharmacy, the University of Mississippi Medical Center clinics and with our external clinical partners. The resident will be exposed to a wide array of patients, including insured, uninsured and Medicare/Medicaid populations.
UMMC Learning Experiences
Residents will have opportunities to learn in academic medical center-based settings utilizing the EPIC system. These learning opportunities include cardiometabolic, family medicine, anticoagulation clinics, cystic fibrosis and many others based on the interests of the resident.
External Clinical Learning Experiences
Our external partners offer the residents opportunities in federally qualified health centers and private medical physician offices. Each of these learning experiences focuses on chronic disease state management in a longitudinal manner.
Teaching and Learning Curriculum
Residents are provided the necessary experiences (including didactic lectures, problem-based learning group facilitation, academic committee service and co-precepting students within clinical practice sites) to obtain an adjunct faculty preceptor position at an ambulatory care site or a non-tenure clinical track faculty position within a school of pharmacy. Completion of this curriculum will result in a Teaching Certificate.
