AMBULATORY CARE ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
The Ambulatory Care Enrichment Program (ACE) will prepare pharmacists to deliver high-quality patient care in an outpatient clinical environment. The training consists of 3 days of live virtual training, including 2 half-day mock clinic sessions during which participants will conduct clinic visits with simulated patient instructors. This clinically-oriented training program is intended for pharmacists who are or soon will be practicing clinically in an ambulatory care or community pharmacy setting. This program is led by experienced practitioners with extensive years of practice in a clinical setting.

This training will begin with case discussions that emphasize practical application of clinical guidelines to individual patient cases. In the mock clinics, participants will learn how to deliver chronic disease management, comprehensive medication review and transitions of care services. Program faculty will provide feedback based on review of electronic medical record notes and simulated patient instructor assessments. Assessment of clinical decision-making and communication skills (motivational interviewing, patient empowerment, etc.) will be included.
Knowledge of pharmacotherapy of common chronic conditions is required; optional self-study resources will be provided and knowledge will be demonstrated on a required assessment prior to attending the training. Please see the program syllabus for more details.
