Ambulatory Care Residency
Director: Teresa Kwong, Pharm.D., BCPS
The University of California, Davis Health System, Department of Pharmacy offers a one-year Pharmacy Practice Residency with an emphasis in Ambulatory Care.
The purpose of the Post-Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) residency program is to provide the opportunity to accelerate the individual’s growth beyond entry-level professional competence in patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services and to further the development of leadership skills that can be applied in any practice setting.
The Pharmacy Practice program will also lay the groundwork for:
• obtaining a position as a clinical practitioner in an ambulatory care clinic or hybrid model at a large health care institution
• becoming a preceptor for pharmacy students and residents
• becoming an adjunct or clinical faculty for a school of pharmacy
• entering into a PGY-2 training program
The residency will be tailored to suit the resident’s individual goals and interests. The resident will typically spend a majority of the year in the outpatient clinics and several blocks participating in acute care and administrative rotations.
