Residency Training Program
PGY2 Residency – Ambulatory Care
After orientation to the department, the resident begins a series of rotations and other activities designed to meet the goals and objectives of the Boston Medical Center (BMC) specialty residency in primary care program. Longitudinal experiences include the anticoagulation clinic, outpatient Cardiology clinic and the primary care clinics located in the Doctors’ Office Building (DOB) and the Yawkey Ambulatory Care Center (YACC). Elective longitudinal rotation options include the HIV adherence clinic, endocrinology, and neurology clinics. Teaching experience is gained by serving as a co-preceptor for a pharmacy student on rotation in the primary care clinic, participating as a facilitator for case conference and/or pharmaceutical care lab at a local school of pharmacy, as well as attending a resident teaching seminar each month with other local area pharmacy residents. Throughout the course of the year, the resident meets objectives in practice management and drug policy development by participating in the DUE program, acting as a drug information resource, and by completing various administrative and management projects as needed. The Primary Care Specialty residency program is an ASHP-accredited PGY2 residency program offering advanced clinical training in Ambulatory Care Pharmacotherapy and Medication Therapy Management.
In addition to clinical services, BMC also operates 2 high-volume independent outpatient pharmacies, one in each of the ambulatory care buildings
