PHAR 772 - ADVANCED PATIENT CARE-AMBULATORY CARE
Students will apply the facts, information and concepts gained in didactic coursework to professional practice through practical experience under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist in an ambulatory care setting. The ambulatory care rotations rotation helps students integrate knowledge and theoretical concepts across the curriculum in an environment that encourages and requires interactions between students, preceptors and patients. Our goal is to enable students to provide safe, effective and cost-efficient disease state management by assuring the safe, accurate preparation and dispensing of medications, developing patient-specific pharmacotherapy plans and optimizing patients' outcomes. Students should gain experience in treating common disease states in the ambulatory care environment, including but not limited to endocrine disorders, cardiovascular diseases, commonly occurring outpatient infectious diseases, respiratory diseases by taking patient histories, developing patient-specific recommendations, providing counseling, monitoring patient outcomes and consulting with other healthcare providers.
