The Scott & White Health Plan offers four positions as community-based, pharmacy residents: two at the Dallas site and two at the Temple location. The residency is designed to produce advanced patient care practitioners experienced in the provision of care to diverse ambulatory patient populations in the community environment as a member of an interdisciplinary team. Graduates will be able to function as adjunct faculty for college of pharmacy and be able to incorporate the principles of managed care into his or her practice. The residents practice in year-long longitudinal “rotations”: management of anticoagulation patients under drug therapy protocol, management of patients with chronic diseases, medication therapy management, and retail pharmacy operations. The major training goals for our PGY1 residency follow those required by ASHP. They include:

  • Manage and improve the medication-use process
  • Provide evidence-based, patient-centered and collaborate with other healthcare professionals to optimize patient care
  • Exercise leadership and practice management skills
  • Demonstrate project management skills
  • Provide medication and practice-related information, education, and/or training
  • Utilize medical informatics
  • Demonstrate skills required to function in an academic setting.

Each resident will participate in collaborative research and teaching experiences.
