Clinical Pharmacist Training Program in Primary Care

The College of Pharmacy will be offering an on-site training program from August 20 – August 23, 2018.

This program will prepare pharmacists to run a productive practice in an outpatient clinical environment. The training consists of 4 days of live training, including 3 half-day mock clinic sessions during which participants will conduct 18 clinic visits with simulated patient instructors.

Live 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.
